Jersey Association for Youth and Friendship

Extent: Jersey
Updated 05 June 2019


The Association was formed in Jersey in 1961 to provide secure accommodation for young people between the ages of 15 and 25. Those helped have often left care homes and need assistance with accommodation, support and counselling until able to fend for themselves.

A list of the four hostels run by the JAYF is held at 11.1.1.L2

Young people in employment and able to pay a reasonable rent contribute to the running of the homes, but the shortfall is provided by the fund-raising committee.
