Young people who approach their local authority for help should be given support to prevent or relieve their homelessness. This might include support to access housing, mediation to rebuild family relationships or financial assistance.
Centrepoint’s Youth Homelessness Databank collects local data from across the UK concerning the scale and impact of homelessness among young people. Research will give vital insights into the kind interactions and support homeless young people have had with their local councils.
Centrepoint provides homeless young people with accommodation, health support and life skills to get them back into education, training and employment.
