Wrexham’s Youth Homelessness Prevention Service

Posted on:   Posted by:

We offer support to young people 11-25 years old who are experiencing problems with their accommodation on a voluntary basis.

There may be a whole range of reasons why you are having problems with where you are staying, such as disagreements about boundaries, tensions within the home, drug and alcohol use, staying at a friend’s family home.

Our team can help you look at these reasons and can support you overcome them. That may be that we link you in with services who specialise in that area, or in any other way, such as, completing forms, access education providers, refer you to mediation.

We can support you BEFORE you get into crisis. We want to reduce the number of young people who become homeless.  Focusing on young people at high risk of homelessness staying in the family home/network where safe to do so.

Here’s a list of some things which may increase your risk of homelessness:

  • Not attending school, or being excluded.
  • Involvement in the criminal justice system
  • Running away or not going home at night
  • Substance misuse

What you can expect from us:

  • Support and advice to enable you to make informed decisions about your lifestyle choices.
  • Factual and relevant information based on your needs.
  • We can meet you at a place that is best for you
  • To be listened to

You can refer yourself to this confidential, free support, or you can get someone you know and trust to refer you. There is a simple referral form that has to be completed.

If you are unsure if we can help, then feel free to contact someone from the team, we are based at

The Vic, 13 Hill Street, Wrexham. LL11 1SN, or you can email us on YHPS@wrexham.gov.uk or call the office 01978 317955. We also have a worker based 4 days at the infoshop who can support you.
