End Youth Homelessness campaigns is a group of charities and businesses, brought together by Centrepoint, to tackle a problem which effects 80,000 16 to 25 year olds across the UK.
Focussing on the key areas of housing, skills and prevention, the campaign works to change both national and local policies to ensure that homeless young people can secure both a home and a job, and ultimately a positive future.
Working jointly with the Royal College of GPs, businesses and housing and support providers, the group also serves to spread best practice and innovative ways of working to improve health outcomes, tackle housing shortages and help homeless young people into work.
At the next election youth unemployment will be a key focus for the major political parties.
Between now and then, End Youth Homelessness wants to demonstrate the vital role that employers can and do play in providing opportunities to many vulnerable young people, who want to work but perhaps do not currently have the right experience or skills to sustain employment and fulfil their potential.
