Jersey Charities

L'Associâtion des Charités d' Jèrri



Membership Number: AJC10 / Registered Charity Number: 143


JAYF provides safe, affordable, and supervised accommodation to young people between the ages of 18 and 25 who might otherwise be homeless in Jersey. Although rough sleeping is the most visible form of homelessness, more young people experience ‘hidden homelessness.’ Pushed to the brink, they are sleeping on sofas of family and friends or living in cars with no stability or security. The demand for accommodation is at its highest ever due to the impact of COVID and the cost-of-living crisis on young people, including loss of employment, rising rent and family breakdown

JAYF provides a degree of stability and security as a stepping stone to enable residents to find employment and find more permanent accommodation; and holistic, person-centred, responsive, flexible, quality support, in a positive environment where issues connected to homelessness can be addressed. JAYF empowers residents to achieve their goals and get access to appropriate services.
