Every year Depaul UK supports around 3,700 of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged young people in the country.

We offer them emergency overnight and long term supported accommodation, accompanied with specialist support. This includes employability skills, health and housing advice and money management training – helping to provide the life skills and knowledge that these young people need to move beyond homelessness.

Our vision is that every young person has a place to call home and we make it our mission to offer homeless and disadvantaged young people the opportunity to move into stable accommodation, fulfil their potential and move towards an independent and positive future. People exactly like Sam, who found himself homeless after his relationship with his parents broke down:

“The help from Depaul was amazing. Coming to Westbourne hostel has affected my whole life for the better. The encouragement, the support and backing from Depaul has made an immense difference on shaping my future in society. Thanks to the help from Depaul I have come so far and have just started University, beginning a new positive chapter in my life.”
