Strategy to end youth homelessness

15th June 2023

All of us have noticed a worrying increase in homelessness in our communities, with under-25s making up a big part of this group. But we don’t need despair or pity; we know how to solve youth homelessness and have the data to support it.

This is why 1625ip has joined over 80 amazing homelessness charities across the UK, all working to support young people to stay safe, housed and supported. We’re using our shared platforms to call on the government to commit to a strategy to end youth homelessness. We’ve pulled together the recommendations and proven solutions into a policy briefing that can deliver this much-needed change. #PlanForThe129k
