The London charity New Horizon Youth Centre has started its own guerrilla-style shelter by offering free bus tickets to homeless youth, giving them a safe place to sleep at night. The charity even provides them with recommended bus routes to ensure they have an accommodation all night.
At its homeless shelter, the London charity offers the participants a breakfast and shower the following morning. New Horizon Youth Centre also offers legal advice and specifically targets youth, aged 16 to 24. This ingenious solution attempts to address the growing number of homeless youth in London which has doubled since 2010.
The number of vulnerable youth continues to rise because of skyrocketing rent prices and lack of shelter or hostel space. The charity is attempting to appeal to policy makers, but little has been done to aid in the crisis.
