Combating Homelessness, Creating Opportunities, Promoting Change

Hastings Young People’s Service

The Hastings Young People’s Service is a supported housing project for homeless and vulnerable young people aged between 16 and 25 years old.

The Hastings Young People’s Service is more than just a place to stay. We support our residents to learn a range of skills from cooking, hygiene and money management to living within their community and being ‘neighbourly’. We believe that these skills are vital for our residents to be able to live independently in the future.

Our residents are expected to engage in education, employment or training activities whilst a part of the Hastings Young people’s Service so that they can gain the skills and qualifications that they will need to successfully move forward with their lives.

The project comprises of four properties; each resident will move from through the stages towards increased independence.

Brittany Road (stage 1)
Southwater Road (stage 2)
Milward Road (stage 2)
Filsham Road  (stage 3)

Real Life Story
AM was initially housed at Brittany Road after being made homeless. He was terribly vulnerable and upset having been thrown out of his family home and having to spend time sofa surfing and sleeping rough.

He had experienced violence from his father and was suffering from depression and some suicidal thoughts.

We discovered that as well as being at risk AM has a moderate learning disability and finds reading and writing difficult. He has also had explosive anger episodes in the past and he agreed to work with us to manage these.

AM was initially very vulnerable and was housed at Brittany Road for a couple of months before being moved to Filsham Road after we assessed that he would thrive better there. Having work with AM we have gradually brought out him out of his shell.
