A high percentage of young people lose their homes each year in Calderdale due to their failure to manage their money and keep up with rent and bills.

The SOBS team work with 16–24 year olds who are first time social housing tenants or may rent homes in Calderdale in the future.

Their aim is to reduce the number of young people who lose their homes and make them more financially streetwise.

Look out for the SOBS Team in your area!

Or you can contact SOBS yourself or be referred by a worker that you are already seeing at another organisation.
