Nature and Context

While studies show the causes of youth homelessness are linked to family life and barriers to completing education, the long term effects of being homeless are understudied. By collecting date from the services that help them, and from the homeless individuals themselves we can track how youths become homeless, and what happens to them in the long run could help us understand and help prevent the problem

Ideas Description

The Youth Homelessness Databank is a Google-funded two-year digital innovation project that is building two key digital tools for the youth homelessness sector: A Data Dashboard to collate, measure and display youth homelessness data from multiple sources such as national government, local authorities, charities and housing providers, helping us better understand numbers of young people experiencing homelessness, why young people become homeless and the impact of services region by region.
