to clients from 16 upwards who are homeless or at risk of
homelessness. Our aim is to encourage and support an individual’s journey
toward increased independence.

us. ILS has developed expertise in working effectively with young and
vulnerable people. Our culture is a supportive one. The relationship we build
is genuine and lasting. Individuals return to us for help because they know we
will listen, be non- judgemental and support their efforts in a way that works
for them. Much of this work involves supporting young and vulnerable people to re-engage with their communities and to progress towards independence.
