Doorway and Our Work

Doorway is an independent charity working in Warwickshire, enabling young homeless people aged 16 – 25 to secure and maintain appropriate accommodation through prevention, crisis intervention and tenancy sustainment.

Since 1997 Doorway has provided high quality housing and support for young people who are either homeless or vulnerable. We work in wards which are the most deprived in Warwickshire and within the top 10% in the country. Preventing homelessness is very important to us and we explore all options to ensure that young people are appropriately housed.

We provide both shared and self-contained accommodation and provide an intensive and flexible service that is tailor made to each individual's needs through our unique private landlords scheme.

Our services are open to all young people and those we work with come from a variety of backgrounds. They may have escaped domestic violence, parents relocating, parents not accepting their child's sexuality, seeking independence. All are socially excluded and need our support.

Doorway provides the practical and emotional support that enables the young people to gain the skills and confidence they need to rebuild their lives. We work with young people to the point they no longer need us.
