We have a specialist youth mediation team who work with 16 and 17 year olds who are at risk of being made homeless. Usually, this will be because they are unable to remain at home.

Being young and homeless can be a very isolating and disruptive experience. For this reason, we try to help as many young people remain at home as possible.

What is the mediation service?

The mediation team work with the young person and their parents/carers to help them talk about the problems they are having at home. Providing there is no risk of harm, our aim is to help the whole family come to an agreement that allows the young person to remain in the family home.
