Youth homelessness

CHYP BuildingCHYP

CHYP (Council for Homeless Young People) is based in the Kelvinbridge area of Glasgow and offers supported accommodation for 13 young people aged 16-21, both male and female, who have acquired basic living skills but do not feel that they are ready to live independently.

The expected length of stay is 9-12 months and residents progress from separate bedrooms sharing communal kitchens, living area and bathrooms to self contained flats at the basement of the building.

Fire Station Project

Our Fire Station Project offers housing support for young, vulnerable adults aged 16-25 years.

The Project supports young people who are or have been homeless or are considered to be at risk of homelessness.  This can include young people who are already in a tenancy and are having difficulties sustaining it. The service helps them to set up their own tenancy and equip them with the skills to sustain and maintain this tenancy. 

The service is available from 9am to 8pm, seven days a week.

A wide range of support services are provided by the Fire Station project:

  • resettlement support
  • budgeting and debt
  • safety and security of tenancy
  • access other support services, e.g. health, social work, leisure, education, welfare rights and advocacy services
  • advice and support on the use of domestic equipment and appliances
  • life skill training in maintaining a tenancy
  • general counselling and support including advice on food preparation
  • enabling social interaction with the community.
