We deliver a range of services that include accommodation, support, advice and guidance with 2 aims:
BACKUP North West
Backup is the longest running young persons supported housing scheme in Bolton.
We support young people aged 16 – 25 years old. We prevent homelessness by providing an opportunity for young people who are homeless to be safe, stable and develop skills for independence.
In doing so we see improvements in health and well-being. There’s reduction in risk of harm, improvements in managing finances and an increase in self-confidence, This leads to improvements in health both physical and mental, less exploitation, reduction in use of drugs or alcohol amongst other things.
