Homeless strategy

Nottinghamshire County Council has begun a public consultation about its plan to prevent youth homelessness across the county.

It sets out commitment to support 19 to 25 year olds and teenage parents and ways the council could improve matters.

Nuthall councillor Philip Owen, the council’s cabinet member for children said: “Youth homelessness is not a new problem. It is an entrenched and complex social phenomenon and one that needs our attention.”

“Our vision is to improve the life chances, life changes and life choices of young people in Nottinghamshire who are threatened with homelessness or who are already homeless.”
