Are you a young person at risk of homelessness or sofa surfing in Torridge and need housing advice and support?


Streetwise Torridge works with young people between the ages of 16-18 and up to 21 if you have been in social care, providing advice and support around housing and homelessness issues. The project is specifically targeted at young people who are either at risk of becoming homeless or who are homeless or sleeping rough.   Based at Torridge District Council, Streetwise offers free and confidential support and is the first point of contact for young people in Torridge experiencing housing issues.  Our team will carry out a full needs assessment with you to determine the most appropriate support for you which can include:

  • a full range of housing options available to you
