JAYF is a charity founded in 1961 in Jersey. We are committed to helping young people experiencing homelessness by providing safe, secure accommodation. Our aim is to work proactively with young people facing complex barriers to help develop the skills they need to live independently.
JAYF enabled me to have privacy within a supportive network of staff and other residents which helped to build my confidence. I have made new friends and am now able to think about my options for the future.”
