In 2017-18, it was estimated that 84,000 young people in England presented to their local authority as homeless or at risk. 

The effects of homelessness on this already vulnerable group can have lasting implications on their mental health, educational attainment and employment prospects, and lead to a greater probability of experiencing homelessness again in later life.  The programme will include keynote presentations, panel discussions and a selection of workshops considering how we can work together to change this picture!  

This national one-day conference will: 

  • discuss the importance of taking time to understand young people's experiences and providing a platform for their voices to effect change;
  • provide practical guidance on different ways to support young people at risk of or experiencing homelessness, exploring the additional challenges and disadvantages faced by particular groups and demographics;
  • share good practice in areas of youth engagement, intervention and mental health, as well as approaches such trauma informed care, psychologically informed environments and strengths based working;
  • provide a space for youth and homelessness sector professionals to network and share ideas, experience and learning.
