    Story

    KEY is a small local charity based in South Tyneside. They uprovide advice, support and accommodation to young people aged 16 to 25 who are experiencing hardship and / or threatened with homeless.

    Helping prevent homelessness:

    • Offering advice and guidance

    • Mediating between young people and their parents.

    • Peer education involving ex homeless young people going into schools to talk about their experiences.

    Supporting young people with independent living

    • Giving out emergency food packs

    • 2 designated support officers for young people managing their first tenancy

    • Flavia House – Shared supported accommodation for up to 5 young people

    • Strickland House – Shared supported accommodation for up to 4 young people

    • Workshops on cooking healthy meals on a low budget, managing money.

    • Advice on find employment and training.

    It was set up in 1992 by volunteers from several local churches that came together after a homeless young man died on the streets in winter. KEY has grown steadily since then and now employs 10 workers (full & part-time) and 15 volunteers. We directly support and advise up to 100 young people each year.
