In delivering our work to support young people experiencing homelessness, we find they face the same barriers time and time again:
They are often invisible to authorities and services.
They can’t evidence their homelessness.
They are often not seen as a priority need, or believed.
They don’t know what support is available.
They are subject to age-related pay discrimination.
They receive reduced welfare benefits.
There is a lack of supply of suitable, affordable housing for young people.
They face systematic racism and discrimination.
They face a higher risk of exploitation.
