Depaul is a youth homelessness charity, we have been operating for more than 30 years working alongside young people facing homelessness. We offer housing and accommodation, practical support and the wellbeing resources that the people we work with need to get back on their feet.

The Depaul Group was founded in 1989 in response to the growing number of homeless London youth sleeping rough on the streets. Today, Depaul International charities work around the world, going where the need is greatest and exerting global influence on policy through the Institute of Global Homelessness.

In the UK, we have expanded services to the North East, South Yorkshire, Milton Keynes and Greater Manchester as well as London and the South East. We also manage and accredit the Nightstop Network of community volunteer hosting services, which operates in more than 30 communities around the UK.

We’re committed to innovation in our response to homelessness, embracing new ways of working, developing for measuring outcomes and carrying out hard-hitting original research.

Though the challenges which face homeless young people have changed since 1989, our commitment to ending homelessness and changing the lives of those affected by it has not.
