Every year, thousands of young people in London become homeless. The support they need often isn’t there from local councils and the housing crisis, cuts to services and a difficult job market mean that they risk staying homeless. All too often their struggle to build a better life is lost in the daily battle of trying to find somewhere to sleep. That’s why New Horizon Youth Centre exists.
‘Youth Centre’ may be in our name, but we are so much more than that.
We are a vital support network for 16-24 year olds with nowhere else to go. Through the holistic services we provide at our daycentre and outreach team we support thousands of young people experiencing homelessness to increase their health, improve their economic circumstances and find somewhere that they can call home. For seven days of the week, almost every day of the year we offer everything from a hot cooked meal and showers, right through to advice and counselling. More than anything we offer a hope for a brighter future.
Following the departure of our long standing Treasurer, we are recruiting for an experienced professional to join our Board, provide oversight of our finances and ensure that we can sustain a well-run organisation that enables young people to thrive.
This is a voluntary role, though expenses will be reimbursed. All trustees are appointed for a three-year term and may be reappointed.
