Young people: Housing and homelessness
It is fair to say that the housing options of young people in Wales are limited. Young people are generally disadvantaged over other groups due to the financial/poverty gap set by legislation and that, as a group, they include a significant amount of single households.
This training course will look at the causes and consequences of homelessness for this group and their housing options from accessing emergency accommodation to securing a tenancy.
- Relevant homelessness legislation, statutory duties, and the Code of Guidance and the duties owed towards young people
- Problem solving with landlords and tenancies
- Benefit entitlement and restrictions
- Case studies based on our experience of working with young people across Wales
This course is suitable for anyone who works with or advises young people and needs a clear understanding of young people’s housing rights and options.
