About This Service

HYPA, standing for Helping Young People Achieve, provides a wide range of support to young people to find and harness their talent for a positive future. It has supported many thousands of young people since its inception in September 1958, helping them to access and maintain safe and appropriate accommodation, to reconnect with family, school, employment and the community.

Many of the young people we support have experienced trauma in their lives and need extensive support. We recognize that despite their often chaotic life circumstances, the young people who come to HYPA are incredibly resilient. We believe every young person we help has the strength and capacity to bring about positive change and build a future beyond their present expectations.
