Housing First for Youth: Tuesday 4th February 2020

Speakers: Lisa O’Brien, Focus Ireland & Samara Jones, Housing First Europe Hub

Moderator: Robbie Stakelum

Housing First has grown as a popular service model for combatting homelessness in Europe. With increasing youth homelessness, the model has become increasingly popular as an intervention for young people.

However, evidence has shown that applying the general Housing First model isn’t effective with young people. This webinar explores the specific principles which underpin Housing First for Youth as a different service model adapted to the needs of young people experiencing homelessness.

A full video recording of the webinar can be found below or by visiting our Youtube channel here.
