We awarded £4,000 to help SASH support vulnerable young people from across North and East Yorkshire

Based in York, SASH supports young people who are at risk of homelessness. The charity intervenes by offering a room in the home of a volunteer host as a step towards their goal of living independently.

As well as providing safe accommodation, SASH is committed to helping people overcome the issues which may have led to homelessness and helps them to successfully move on from their experience.

Volunteer hosts act as mentors and help the young people acquire the skills and knowledge they need to become independent. The charity also offers regular meetings and training sessions to ensure that placements are going well and that young people are motivated in achieving their goals.

In 2017, the Masonic Charitable Foundation awarded £4,000 to help SASH support vulnerable young people from across North and East Yorkshire.

We prevent young people from becoming homeless by offering them a room in the home of a volunteer and our ambition is that those we help never have to experience homelessness again. We are very grateful to the Foundation for this grant, which will help us support some of the most vulnerable young people in our region over the coming year.
