Petition Create a national strategy to end youth homelessness
In 2021-22, 129,000 young people experiencing homelessness approached their council for help. Yet no one is talking about this and there is no national plan to end this ahead of the General Election.
This has to change. We have the power to help so many young people, and absolutely should.
The scale of the issue may be unseen but the solutions are not. Young people’s experiences of homelessness are different from other age groups, so the solutions need to be different too. We know what works. That’s why we are calling for a cross-departmental strategy, prioritising prevention, housing & finances, to end youth homelessness.
As a coalition of over 100 youth organisations, we’re calling on government to commit to a strategy to end youth homelessness.
We need a #PlanForThe129k.
