Hounslow Young People is the first Look Ahead service in Hounslow and the first time we have delivered a complete young people pathway within a borough. The service supports 74 customers across six sites, including two mother and baby units, and is moving towards supporting young people with higher needs. The service is founded on positive partnerships formed with key NHS and social care stakeholders.

She lived with us for three years, during which she trained as one of our Peer Support Volunteers and gained her BSc in Criminology through London South Bank University. She has recently started work as one of our newest Housing Oﬃcers.
