Housing for Young People
Housing for single young people aged between 16 and 24 who have been assessed as homeless
At Christian Action Housing, we pride ourselves on the fact that the Young People’s Service is a central part of our core offer. We offer quality supported accommodation to young people within the boroughs of Enfield and Haringey.
To be eligible for supported housing you must be aged 16 – 24 (23 on application) and assessed as homeless. You must be prepared to work with a support worker in regards to any support needs identified as well as our Education, Employment and training coordinators who will support you to identify your career aspirations.
“My support worker Julia is a leader in my life and always comes up with a plan. She is always so calm and knows what to do” (Young person from Teresa House).

Accessing Supported Housing
If you are 16 or 17 years old contact FAST at Claverings Industrial Estate, 9 Centre Way, Edmonton, N9 0AP - Tel 0208 379 2300. Call first to explain your situation and that you will be coming in. If you are already receiving support from the Council, or any other service provider, ask them to accompany you to the interview.
For young people who are 18 years and above and living in the borough of Enfield, we also offer a weekly housing advice surgery at the local housing advice centre John Wilkes House.

Here’s what some of our young people are saying about the services we provide –
“I like being able to get involved with planning events and seeing all our hard work pay off when it all goes well” (youth panel member).
“Before I came here, I felt like giving up my studies as I had nowhere to live. The staff at the Foyer have really helped me to focus on my studies and they support me to maintain my housing. I am now on the way to Cambridge!” (Young person from the Foyer)
