The freedom to live your London life

About Our Charity
LHA London

Our Values


We offer young people the ultimate flexibility. We want them to have the freedom to choose exactly how they want to live, to make it as easy as we can.
We have the best locations in the heart of London – ideal for work, study, or just exploring.
We offer a range of room types, facilities, and catering options to suit all needs and all budgets. Everything is included from bills and council tax to cleaning and WIFI.


Whether it’s a young person’s first time away from home or their well-traveled safety matters. We have staff and security on site 24/7. Our entrances are secure and we provide safe places for belongings.
We also provide contents insurance as standard.
We genuinely care about the people that come to stay with us.

Connecting People with Places

Our knowledge, expertise and experience help us to connect. We connect young people to work and their place of study. We connect young people to the very heart of London with all the wonderful experiences it has to offer.
We help bring people together in communities to enable them to make new connections with people and friendships that last a lifetime.

A Home from Home

We have a warm friendly family of “awesome” multilingual staff who take the time to get to know our residents. They talk people’s language making them feel at home.
We strive to create an environment that feels familiar, like home. Our residents tell us that living here is the closest thing to home. Our staff have walked in our residents’ shoes.
They are there to offer young people support and advice, to reassure them and make them feel at home.


As a charity, we aim to make our accommodation accessible to all. Prices start from as little as £90 per week and there are options for catered accommodation too, providing two meals a day. Some of our sites also include a gym which residents can use for free.
All of our rooms are fully inclusive of utilities, internet access, personal belongings insurance and all benefit from 24-hour security.

Who are we?

We believe everyone should be able to follow their dreams. That the cost of accommodation should never be a barrier to a young person being able to study or work; and that no one should have to live in poverty in order to achieve their goals.

As a charity, we run 13 properties in the heart of the world’s greatest city providing the perfect base for young people to live their London life. We believe London is the place to be for work, study and for adventure. From the hottest bands to the coolest bars, the finest galleries to the most amazing views, London is exciting, inspiring and at times, moving. We offer a wide range of accommodations in some of the best central locations at the best all-inclusive rates.

We offer so much more than just a place to stay. We create safe and relaxed living environments where wellbeing is a priority and where young people can live life to the full. We help young people to make connections with new friends, and experience new sights and destinations. And we take away the worry of being somewhere unfamiliar, giving the confidence to experience London and everything it has to offer.
