We support 16-25 year olds in South Ribble, Chorley, Preston and West Lancs. We provide them with somewhere safe to live and give them the support and help they need to move on as confident and independent young adults.
How we work
Having been set up by local people who wanted to do something about a local problem, SLEAP is all about the community getting involved. The accommodation we provide is in the homes of individuals and families. There are many opportunities to volunteer and get involved with SLEAP. We want to bring together those who need help with those in the community who want to help.
