Submission to the Centrepoint call for evidence on youth homelessness

At a discussion group held with young people living in St Mungo’s accommodation in Milton Keynes in march 2016, young clients highlighted a number of factors that contribute to young people becoming homeless, including relationship breakdown, mental health, problems with drugs and alcohol, experiences at school, and migration status.

This response includes reflections from clients and staff on interventions to prevent youth homelessness, including family mediation, work in schools, information and advice, and the role of supported accommodation.
