A new website aims to put businesses, charities and the public in touch with young homeless people to help them achieve their goals.
Young people will be able to upload their aspirations onto the website, which is being set up by the social enterprise Your Own Place CIC.
Members of the public, businesses and charities will then be able to safely interact with the young people and offer support.
Norwich-based Your Own Place received a £5,000 grant through the Santander Foundation to set up the site.
It hopes people and organisations will provide practical help, opportunities or donations to the young people involved.

Rebecca White, director at Your Own Place said: 'This project will be a total game-changer in young people being in charge of their own needs and solutions as well as donors having transparency in their donations.'
