EVER wanted to run away from home and fend for yourself?
It's a feeling many of us may have had at some point in our lives.
But what if you really were homeless?
That is the situation for a number of young people in Times Territory, and something Herts Young Homeless Group (HYHG) is trying to eradicate.

HYHG is a charity providing advice and support for young people aged 16 to 25 who might suddenly find themselves without a roof over their head.
This week homelessness minister Iain Wright visited the project's headquarters in Salisbury Square, Old Hatfield.

Mr Wright met with some of the service users and visited one of the project's "crashpads": family homes that provide up to three weeks temporary accommodation for homeless 16 to 17 year olds.
Mr Wright said: "Herts Young Homeless Group is an inspirational project which is turning around the lives of young people in Hertfordshire and giving them the chance to lead successful and independent lives."
HYHG needs more "crashpads" for their service users.
If you can provide safe, temporary accommodation for young people, call HYHG on 01707 272769.
