Supporting young people at risk of homelessness since 1993

Doncaster Housing for Young People (DHYP) was established in 1993 to support young people aged 16-25 who were at risk of homelessness or vulnerably housed.

Since then we have gone on to support thousands of young people, helping them overcome disadvantage so that they can achieve their own unique potential.

Homelessness has many causes and young people often need support with a range of issues to overcome difficulties in their lives. We run a range of projects (see what we do), all of which are concerned with homelessness prevention, including tenancy support, supported lodgings and an outreach project. In addition to these we run a Wellbeing service which helps young people build their confidence and self-esteem, develop new skills and be in a better position to sustain a home and employment.
