Below is a short film where Claire from Backup tells us more about how the charity provides accommodation, support, advice and guidance for young people.

Bolton at Home is a charitable community benefit society working to make people’s lives better by providing quality housing, giving people opportunities to prosper and helping customers to maximise their income. 

It is crucial we support and team-up with a range of local charities and voluntary organisations who are working hard with dedication, skill and experience to address issues affecting people and communities in and around Bolton.

Homelessness is an important issue. This is why we’re a Guardian and supporter of Backup, formerly known as Bolton Young Persons Housing Scheme.

Backup delivers crucial housing and support services for homeless young people in Bolton.

Through their passionate staff, the team provides a safe and stable place for young people to develop their confidence and life skills enabling independence.

We are proud to work with Backup to ensure people can positively move-on and into permanent accommodation.
