Refreshed Positive Pathway documents launched 

Here is the link to the three updated national frameworks on preventing youth homelessness, which give information and advice to local authorities and their partners.

  • The Positive Pathway Framework is the generic framework for young people who are homeless or at risk.
  • The Care Leavers Accommodation and Support Framework has been developed in partnership with Barnardos
  • The Youth Justice Accommodation Pathway is concerned with those young people involved in offending behaviour and need support with accommodation as part of their rehabilitation and resettlement.
This has been possible thanks to funding from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government
