National Homeless Advice Service

What works

Local authority strategies to prevent homelessness among young people by early interventions generally comprise a number of strands.

This section looks at the key elements of this, being work in schools and youth centres, direct advice to young people and their families, advice provision by local authorities, and intense preventative work.

For further information on good practice examples, see the section on peer learning examples.
