A new advice facility to help hundreds of young people at risk of becoming homeless has been opened in Sheffield.

Roundabout supports 150 homeless youngsters across the city every day and there is huge demand on its emergency hostel for people aged 16 to 21.

The charity has now opened a service to tackle homelessness head on and prevent young people leaving their family home.
