Advice for young people
This section covers some of the most common problems faced by young people, such as finding suitable accommodation, money matters, young parents and advice for students.
You can find out more about our Education service and how we provide information about housing and related issues to young people by visiting our Housemate website. Housemate provides information tailored to young people and has a dedicated Education section for teachers and other youth work practitioners.
