Youth Housing Support Service

Quarriers Youth Housing Support Service provides a high standard of support to young people who are homeless or threatened with homelessness.  We work specifically with young people who are single, aged 16-25 years old and wish to be housed in the north and west areas of Glasgow. The service is registered with Social Care and Social Work Improvement Scotland (SCSWIS) as a Housing Support Service to be provided to young people who are already in supported accommodation, have been homeless, are at risk of becoming homeless, are staying with family or friends on a non-permanent basis, or who have been looked after and accommodated by a local authority.

Opening Hours:

  • 9am-7pm Monday to Friday, and 11am-7pm on Saturday.

    Outwith these times, the service operates a 24-hour on-call service

The young people supported are generally offered their own tenancy by a Registered Social Landlord (RSL) as a Section 5 Referral as a homeless person or as part of the Leaving Care Protocol Statement of best practice.

What we do

  • actively engage with young people in the north and west area of Glasgow to prevent homelessness occurring
  • support young people to live independently within their own homes
  • support young people to access a range of employment, training and educational opportunities

The support we offer varies with the needs of individual young people. We work with each individual to assist in finding suitable accommodation and build essential life skills which enable young people to maintain their own home.

We offer information and advice as well as assisting with budgeting, benefit claims, health matters, emotional wellbeing, cooking skills and other required support on a day-to-day basis.
