Roundabout is strongly committed to preventing young people from becoming homeless and believes home is the best place to be if it is safe to be there.

The overall aim of the service is to help reduce the need for young people to present as homeless across the city, keeping young people safe and off the streets.

In June 2017, we received some lovely feedback of our Prevention Service from The Sheffield College.
