The Next Chapter by Depaul

Help them rewrite their future


Sometimes life forces young people down a path they can’t control. We can’t change the beginning of their story. But together, we can help them rewrite the next chapter of their lives.

why your help is needed

When a young person reaches out to us, they are often at their lowest point with nowhere to go or anyone to turn to. They’ve usually experienced trauma and need mental health support, as well as a safe place to stay. 

At Depaul UK, every young person we work with has their own unique story and set of needs. That’s why our support is tailored to the individual. We listen carefully to their story, build their trust, and help them make a plan to move forward.  We’ll then support and guide them every step of the way.  

Here are just some of the ways we support young people to find a route out of homelessness:

  • emergency and long-term accommodation  
  • help with access to housing support or to pay utility bills  
  • legal advice and counselling 
  • support with the costs of education or training
  • help with job applications and money management  
  • cooking and parenting skills 

Our resources are stretched as we respond to the cost-of-living crisis, but we continue to be committed to our tailored approach to help young people get back on their feet for good.

We’ll do whatever it takes to provide the right support and move young people safely into the next chapter of their life.
