Do you have a spare room?

Family dynamics can have their ups and downs at the best of times and life isn't always easy when you are a teenager or young adult. But for some young people, events can spiral into a situation that makes living at home impossible. That’s where Surrey’s Volunteer Host Service comes in. They provide emergency accommodation to young people aged 16 – 21 who are at risk of being made homeless.

The service relies on volunteers who can offer a spare room to the young person for 1-3 nights, whilst efforts are made to try and resolve their accommodation difficulties.

For more information about the service call the team on: 01483 518445 or visit:
