This week is Youth Homelessness Week, and the 10th of April marks Youth Homelessness Matters Day, which is all about raising the awareness of the 26,000 young people who have no place to go or stay. The Midland Debt and Legal Advocacy Service (MIDLAS) believe that is it important to raise awareness of our youth that are sleeping rough on the streets and to those with precarious housing.
Research suggests that it is family breakdowns, domestic and family violence issues, and family unit disruptions, which are largely to blame for youth homelessness. So today, the 10th of April, make the pledge to go without your bed for the 26,000 young people who don’t have a choice.
