Supported accommodation for homeless young people

We provide practical and emotional support for vulnerable young homeless people aged 16 to 25 in the Cotswold District area. Young people who have nowhere to go, due to abuse, leaving care or family breakdown,come to stay at Chyp and we help them get their lives back on track.

All of Chyp’s clients are economically and educationally disadvantaged and Chyp and have suffered from complicated and insurmountable challenges in their lives. No young person is homeless without something going seriously wrong in their life at some point. Each young person has their own unique set of problems requiring individual attention. Most importantly they need somebody they can trust and rely on, often for the first time in their lives, that's where Chyp comes in.


Chyp realises that providing a roof over these young people’s heads isn’t enough. They need help and support to get their lives on track and start living independently. CHYP has demonstrated that intensive support at an early stage can improve the life skills and employability of these young people preventing the slide back into homelessness and benefit dependency.
