Supporting young people at risk of homelessness since 1993

Doncaster Housing for Young People (DHYP) was established in 1993 to support young people aged 16-25 who were at risk of homelessness or vulnerably housed.

Since then we have gone on to support thousands of young people, helping them overcome disadvantage so that they can achieve their own unique potential.

Homelessness has many causes and young people often need support with a range of issues to overcome difficulties in their lives. We run a range of projects, all of which are concerned with homelessness prevention, including tenancy support, supported lodgings and an outreach project. In addition to these, we run a Wellbeing service which helps young people build their confidence and self-esteem, develop new skills and be in a better position to sustain a home and employment.


Progressions Project

Providing support for young people aged 16-25 who are homeless, at risk of homelessness or inadequately housed.

We can help you find somewhere to live, assist in setting up a tenancy, provide advice about budgeting and welfare benefits and refer you to other agencies for support if needed

Floating Support

Through our floating support service, we can help you to set up and maintain a tenancy with advice and support on a range of issues including life skills, living independently, budgeting, welfare benefits, advocacy and referrals to other agencies.

Supported Lodgings

A ‘’stepping stone’’ to independent living, with the young person living with a host family in Doncaster.

The young person has their own bedroom and shares bathroom and kitchen facilities with the family. Each young person is supported by both the Host and a DHYP Project Worker and has a tailored support plan with goals set by the young person themselves.

Wellbeing Hub

We run a weekly Wellbeing Hub on a Thursday afternoon from our office on Chequer Road.

We provide a safe space to meet with and chat to other young people and to participate in different activities each week such as quizzes and arts and crafts.


We run wellbeing activities and discussion groups each week based on the priorities identified by clients themselves.

We are able to provide support for a range of issues and offer one-to-one counselling with an experienced Counsellor, group wellbeing sessions and informal sessions with our Wellbeing Coaches.

Young Persons Forum

DHYP puts the voice of young people at the heart of our organisation.

Our Young Persons’ Forum (YPF) provides the opportunity for young people to have their sayon the services DHYP provides and also on the wider issues affecting young people in Doncaster. The YPF is chaired by a client of the organisation and is open to all clients and non-clients aged 16-25.

Employment Skills

Our employment skills project supports young people aged 16-25 who need support finding employment, apprenticeships, training programmes or volunteer opportunities.

We can assist with writing CVs, completing applications and preparing for interviews, all of which help young people to gain workplace skills and develop their confidence.
