It is commonly acknowledged that young people continue to be strongly hit by the economic crisis. While youth exclusion and youth unemployment are high on the European Union agenda, there is concern that EU measures do not target sufficiently the most vulnerable. As the economic context remains challenging, youth homelessness is increasing in many EU member states. FEANTSA wants to point out that some measures taken by governments may have a dramatic long term impact on the exclusion of young people. Therefore we call upon the EU and member states to take a series of measures to prevent the further worsening of youth homelessness levels.
