The annual FEANTSA Youth Study sessions over the past three years have provided an opportunity for young professionals from across Europe to come together to identify key issues in tackling youth homelessness and propose a series of solutions. The study sessions have led to a growing and dynamic alumni network with membership from across a wide variety of fields including social work, youth work, academics, students, law, architecture, public policy (local and national civil services), NGOs and others.
The past study sessions have focused on taking a human rights approach to preventing youth homelessness while also developing and implementing an advocacy strategy aimed at raising awareness for youth homelessness among policy makers.
In June 2017 the FEANTSA Youth Study Session will focus on Housing First for Youth. Housing First is a model of providing housing for people with chronic experiences of homelessness and complex needs. It has proven successful and is becoming mainstreamed into many European Government’s Housing and Homelessness Strategies. This study session will take the Housing First model and look at how best the model can be implemented to address youth homelessness, and the specific needs which often accompany youth homelessness.
