Welcome to The Pilion Trust

Our Services

The Crash Pad Youth Service


The Crash Pad shelter opens from 19 November 2018 to the 20 of May 2019 and supports homeless young people in crisis and at risk providing a friendly family orientated place that they can rest and feel safe. 

During their stay at the shelter, the young people are given a bed with clean bedding, towels, dinner and breakfast, access to hot water and bathroom facilities, somewhere to wash and dry their clothes and someone to listen to them and support them throughout their stay.
