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
