A home A job

Lgmi with others organisations is the UK’s leading youth homelessness charity – but what does that actually mean? It means that, together with our partners, we support 5,000 young people every year.

Our programmes Housing

Lgmi gives homeless young people a place to stay while they get the help they need to move on to independence.


Good health is the foundation on which young people can build their confidence and skills.


We give young people the opportunity to complete their education, gain skills and prepare for a career.

Policy and research

Lgmi campaigns to influence national and local government policy that affects homeless young people.


Using our unique approach, our Sport programmes combine physical fitness with education, life skills and employment training.

Moving On

At all times, our overall goal is to prepare homeless young people to live independently

The Youth Homelessness Databan

To end youth homelessness, we need to know how many people experience homelessness and what happens to them when they seek help.

Our Youth Homeless Databank brings together all the information available to build the clearest picture possible.


Lgmi runs a partnering scheme that pulls together a national network of organisations supporting homeless young people.
