Our Mission

Established in 1982, Streetlife is an organisation which assists vulnerable young people in Blackpool, a lot of whom access our service as homeless.

Our aim is to enable and empower them to make informed choices, about issues affecting their lives. We provide support – for those young people 16 to 25 – from The Base, our Day Centre, and Night Shelter, which serves as emergency accommodation for those who need it most.

Our Staff

Our staff team is made up of a variety of roles including specialist workers who can support young people with a range of issues. We also have a team of approximately 35 committed volunteers including several gap year volunteers from oversees
