Young people

If you are a young person 16-25 experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness there are a number of ways that SHYPP can work with you.

Come along to our drop-in sessions for free and confidential housing and benefits advice.

We are available as follows:

  • Every Monday and Wednesday 1.30pm to 4.30pm at No Wrong Door, Unit 2, Blackfriars Street, Hereford, HR4 9HS
  • Every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 1.30pm to 4.30pm at Hereford Library, Broad Street, Hereford, HR4 9AU

No appointment necessary.

Alternatively you can call us on 0300 561 0140 to get an appointment or email or message us via facebook.


If you need accommodation we can then talk you through your options and see what SHYPP accommodation might be available and suit you.

SHYPP Foyers are our main form of accommodation and these provide shared communal living with your own room and some shared facilities like a kitchen and communal area.  During your stay at the foyer we would expect you to get involved in foyer training and activities to prepare you for living in your own place.  We would work with you to develop the things you enjoy doing and are good at. After a period of6-12 months at a foyer you should be ready to move on and live by yourself.

SHYPP also has other accommodation ranging from a shared house to single independent move on flats for people who have been successful in a foyer.

Young person’s workers

For people not needing accommodation, young person’s workers can work with you providing housing advice, help to find appropriate accommodation,training, employment and education, and benefits advice.We also have specialist support for young parents and for care leavers.
