This unique event, run by young people from across the country, who have all experienced homelessness, will improve your understanding of what services young people need. Guided by their expertise and direct experience, it will enable you to:
influence emerging policy
design and deliver local public services that meet local need.
Central to delivering effective, appropriate services, is developing a greater understanding of what works and what could be improved upon. This is only possible by directly involving the users of those services, the young people themselves. This event will share their personal stories, their passion for change and their considered views on what works in relation to accessing and receiving support from housing, health, education, welfare and employment related services. This relevant insight can help shape future service provision.
