Homeless young people

Homeless Link has published a report exploring the trends, causes and nature of homelessness experienced by young people (aged 16-24) in England. Findings from a survey of 109 service providers and 79 local authorities show that: 44% of the young people supported by homelessness accommodation organisations are not in education employment or training; 41% lack independent living skills; 35% have mental health problems; and 28% of those accessing services over the last 12 months are aged 16 or 17.
