Seven young people from York, Scarborough and Bridlington who recently faced homelessness and are currently being supported by the youth homelessness charity, SASH, (Safe and Sound Homes) gave guided tours at historic Scampston Hall to help them develop their confidence and speaking skills whilst connecting with the charity's supporters.
The charity provides an emergency Nightstop service as well as longer-term supported lodgings delivered by volunteer hosts. Last year, SASH helped over 320 young people when they had nowhere else to turn, many of whom were just 16-18.
