CAYSH has been delivering services to young people aged between 16-25 facing homelessness in London since 1981, offering safe homes. support and advice to enable them to achieve their potential. Our service users have helped design our method of delivery and programmes which makes them effective in achieving positive outcomes for young people and for our funders. We place our young people at the heart of all we do and listen and learn from their experiences.
CAYSH operates services in a number of London Boroughs, partnering with Local Authority Housing and Children and Families departments. Click here to find out about referral routes
The CAYSH vision is to support vulnerable people, especially the young, to achieve and sustain independent living in safe and secure accommodation, with a view to ending homelessness.
The CAYSH mission is to provide ‘safe homes and better futures for vulnerable people, especially the young’. We work to ensure that the voices of vulnerable people (especially the young), the marginalised and excluded, are heard and that they are not defined by their experiences. We see them as people first and homeless second.
