Homelessness and young people

Homeless Link has published guidance – Supporting homeless 16- and 17-year-olds – developed with Just for Kids Law. It is designed to equip workers with the information needed to support and advocate for the rights of the young people they work with. Alongside a guide to the legal rights of young people, this resource provides information so that workers and young people can plan and prepare to present their case at local authorities. Research has shown that young people are not always housed under the right legislation. This impacts the support they are entitled to in the short and long term and affects both their experiences of homelessness and risk of future homelessness.
