The ‘Positive pathway’, first developed in 2012, is our nationwide framework which aims to help Local Authorities, their partners and other professionals to develop a more collaborative and integrated approach that will lead to better outcomes for young people.
It aims to give a clear framework to better prevent young people aged 16 – 25 from becoming homeless in the first place. It also sets out the sort of services and support needed to help young people who do become homeless to build a more positive future. Following it’s launch in 2012, it was refreshed in 2015 and supplemented further in both 2015 and 2017.
MHCLG have now commissioned St Basils to refresh the entire suite of Positive Accommodation and Support Pathway Frameworks for young people once more, including the generic framework for Young people who are homeless or at risk; Care-Leavers and Young people in the criminal Justice System.
There is an opportunity for delegates to discuss how they can use these strategic and practical frameworks to prevent and relieve homelessness for young people and develop housing opportunities which enable young people to live, learn and work at one of the these regional events taking place;
