Shelter Cymru Housemate pack


Housemate is an awareness-raising resource for use with young people aged 11-18. The overall aim of the pack is to reduce future homelessness and housing need among young people. It introduces various aspects of housing and homelessness:

  • looking at perceptions and stereotypes
  • exploring independent living
  • nurturing a community spirit
  • knowing where to refer for support if ever faced with homelessness.

This is achieved through a series of activities and exercises.

Housemate can be used in a variety of settings: formal and informal learning in schools and colleges, as well as youth clubs, religious groups for young people, voluntary groups, etc. Download the Housemate pack here
