The Young Person’s Temporary Crashpad opened on 22nd December 2011 and will remain open for as long as we have the funds. The Crash Pad is located at The Cally Church N7 9BG on the junction of Caledionian Road and Market Road. Contact Project Co-ordinator Jackie O’Neil on 07800 871 467 to find out if there are any available spaces. The Crash Pad is based in Islington; but is NOT Borough specific if you are aware of a young person 17 to 25 who is homeless and in trouble and in need of some respite in a safe environment while their problems are hopefully resolved please do contact Jackie to see if we can assist the young person in any way.
If you are a person who understands community and the importance of supporting the next generation and this is an area in which you feel as passionate as we do and would like to support the Shelter Me! Youth Crash Pad in any way big or small please feel free to contact Jackie and either ask what assistance she requires or offer what appropriate support you feel comfortable with offering.
A very big Thank you to ALL who have supported us so far and to all who continue to support and those who will support us in the future.
Finally a very big Thank you comes from the kids in the Shelter Me! Crash Pad.

Two years ago Mr Garrick’s journey was a very different one from the journey he is on today.
Mr Garrick’s last journey is a story he would need to tell himself if he so chooses.
His current journey is a lot more positive; he is happy; very hard working; very loyal and is a committed member of The Pilion Trust Crew and Family.
Mr Garrick is now a very positive Role Model to others struggling along their current difficult journeys and is an inspiration and a bundle of excess energy to both young and those not so young.
I as one of his mentors and coaches would like to send out my love and respect to all this young man has achieved in two short years.
He has shown many that one can change ones life around; and that the path can be hard when you walk along a new road; but with love and support great things can be attained.
A very HaPpY BiRtHdAy Mr Howard Garrick and May the Universe send you many many more.
Peace Respect Love & Light xxx
