We are all very aware of the Cost of Living crisis and the effect it’s having on our weekly shop, our energy bills and other utilities. Now imagine that you’re aged 16-24 and have found yourself having to live independently for the first time. Having to look at your monthly budgets and realising that before any kind of luxuries you’re already in the red. That is the situation facing many of the young people we help at Herts Young Homeless.
hyh are helping guide these young people through the services we provide such as Floating Support and the Homeless Hub, however we want to offer more urgent financial support. So, we’ve set up a dedicated Hardship Fund to help raise money for young people to pay towards energy bills, supermarket vouchers and other ‘urgent’ essential items or services that our young people need.
The Cost of Living crisis is tough for us all, but if you are in a position to be able to make a donation to the Hardship Fund, you’ll be directly helping young people who have already had to face being homeless or at risk of homelessness and are trying to get their life moving in the right direction.
