When a homeless young person bravely calls their council asking for help they’re legally entitled to, all too often they are turned away, says Alicia Walker, head of policy, research and campaigns at @Centrepoint. The next government needs to take action:

While yesterday's announcement was a surprise, it doesn't change much for us. We'll still be supporting young Londoners. We'll still be telling the government to prioritise young people and youth homelessness, whoever wins. And we'll still be calling for a #PlanForThe136k

We're so pleased that us and @TheRippleEffect have been shortlisted for the Charity Today award for PR Partner of the Year, for our collaboration on the #PlanForThe136k Campaign to end youth homelessness!

"Young homeless people feel dismissed and ignored when they approach local authorities for help, according to a new @LSEnews report."

The study, for @NHyouthcentre interviewed young homeless people aged 16-24 as well as others as part of the study.
