Young & Homeless 2018

This report of Homeless Link’s national study on youth homelessness outlines the findings from surveys with 188 homelessness services and local authorities across England and in-depth interviews with 25 young people who have experienced homelessness. The report explores the nature and causes of youth homelessness, the available support and best practice, and provides critical evidence to inform local and national government responses. It includes findings on several underresearched areas, such as factors affecting family relationship breakdown, mediation services, and young women’s experiences.
