Contact provides supported accommodation for six single homeless teenage girls aged 16 to 19. Many of these young women have a history of physical and sexual abuse, family breakdown, may be fleeing domestic violence, revenge beatings and may have been in the care system. The main aim of Contact is to provide a safe, secure, non-threatening home-like environment for each young person. Settling them into a less chaotic lifestyle helps the women to regain their self-esteem and respect, enriches their lives and helps them come to terms with the past. StreetSmart funds the salary of one support worker.

Acting on Impulse
Acting on Impulse run confidence building workshops at partner charities, including addiction rehabilitation hostels, homeless day centres and refuges for women. The idea is that by bringing the workshops directly to those that need them, individuals will be more inclined to attend.
