European Framework for Defining Youth Homelessness

International research and insights from frontline services indicates that  young people experiencing homelessness have a different pathway into homelessness and distinct  needs while homeless which require specific youth-oriented solutions to exit homelessness. This framework provides a definition of youth homelessness for organisations working towards the eradication of youth homelessness. This definition is intended to be used as a framework which can be tailored to the various European contexts services operate in.
