Roundabout is South Yorkshire’s local youth housing charity providing shelter, support and life skills to young people aged 16-25 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
When Roundabout first began in 1977, we operated a small emergency hostel accommodation for young people. Over forty years later, our strategic aim is to end youth homelessness in South Yorkshire.
Roundabout now supports over 250 young people living in accommodation every day, either provided by or supported by our charity. We have a hostel, residential projects in Sheffield, Rotherham and Doncaster and provide key services delivering comprehensive programmes of training, involvement and empowerment which help to break the cycle of homelessness and develop long term independent living skills.
We are strongly committed to preventing youth homelessness and deliver highly effective mediation and drop-in advice services as well as homeless education in schools. Our ground breaking Peer Education Project is delivered by trained volunteer Peer Educators who have experienced homelessness themselves.
