Take action to help end youth homelessness

Email your MP about our recommendations to tackle youth homelessness

We are calling on the Government to commit to a proper strategy to tackle youth homelessness, by supporting the recommendations from our Databank report. The new research led by our policy team, suggests that youth homelessness is continuing to climb. 

It's time to ask your MP: Will you stand up for homeless young people?

Email your MP about tackling youth homelessness

Over 129,000 young people reported themselves as homeless or at risk last year. This is an increase from just under 122,000 last year.

We could change the story for many homeless young people, but that can only happen if the Government commit to a proper strategy to tackle youth homelessness. IT you email your MP right now, they might just make it happen.

Will you email your MP and ask them to consider our recommendations to support homeless young people in your area?
