Click Here for: Youth Homeless Parliament Report 2017

“The Youth Homeless Parliament was established in May 2013 to enable young homeless people to have a voice and to share their experiences with politicians in Westminster.

The work was funded by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) now known as The Ministry for Housing, Communities & Local Government.

The Youth Homeless Parliament, which is coordinated by St Basils but involving a wide range of agencies and young people across England, has continued to progress year on year; enabling dialogue directly between Ministers, civil servants and young people who have experienced homelessness, contributing to the development of good practice to support homeless young people across England.

In 2017, the Youth Homeless Parliament were asked by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), formally known as Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) to consult and offer key recommendations on the implementation of the Homelessness Reduction Bill.

Young people welcomed this opportunity to discuss priorities and develop recommendations for Departments across Government, which they believe could make a genuine difference.”
