Hidden Homelessness

Each year many young people find themselves sleeping on friends/families sofas for months at a time.

They are the hidden homeless because although they may be safe from sleeping on the streets, they do not have a place they can call home.   

Doorway’s drop in centre  is also available to absolutely any young person who doesn’t have a stable place to live or is at risk of losing their home. You don’t need to be referred, simply come along to our Centre from 10 – 4  Monday – Friday to get help. 

There is no single solution to homelessness, which is why Doorway offers a holistic service to prevent homelessness, provide homes and rebuild lives – and we work closely with lots of agencies to tackle homelessness in Warwickshire together.
