“Roundabout is Sheffield’s youth homeless charity providing shelter, support and life skills to young people aged 16-24 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.”
The Archer Project “help[s] homeless people achieve a better life by supporting them to develop their independence; improve their ability to tackle setbacks; improve their ability to identify and change negative behaviour; [and] improve their wellbeing.
We get to know people because we want them to realise that they can trust us to help them. When people trust us they are more willing to take part in activities and seek 1-1 support to address their issues. Typically issues will include lack of accommodation; broken family relationships; history of offending; poor mental and physical health; [and] substance misuse.”
Help Us Help is run by local charities, the Sheffield city council, a residents group and other services, and aims to help people actively assist those who find themselves homeless or begging in Sheffield. By bringing together groups that each tackle a particular issue related to rough sleeping, Help Us Help addresses the complex needs of people in need as part of a citywide collaborative effort.
Shelter works to prevent homelessness in Yorkshire by offering “free specialist housing advice, support and guidance if you are homeless, facing homelessness or simply need advice about a housing related issue.
Our trained advisers provide face to face help with a range of housing topics including: eviction or repossession; repairs and responsibilities; landlord disputes; [and] managing debt and rent arrears.”
