A new project is offering free advice to youngsters to deal with housing, benefits and debt.

Doncaster Young Persons Advice Service (DYPAS) is available to people aged 16 to 25.

The scheme is a Partnership Project, funded by the Big Lottery, through Dial Doncaster, M25 Housing Support and Doncaster Citizens Advice Bureau.

A spokesman said: “Young people in Doncaster often face difficulties such as increased pressure due to low incomes and the level of unemployment in the area often leading to increased debt and a reliance on welfare benefits.

“This can impact on young people creating difficulties in relation to accommodation such as increasing costs, disrepair and landlord and tenant issues.

“In addition to this some young people in Doncaster are facing and will continue to face significant changes to the welfare benefits system.

“DYPAS was established to provide advice and assistance to young people aged between 16 and 25. Each of the partners within the project have years of experience delivering debt, welfare benefit and housing advice.”
