Early Intervention and Prevention Event, 26th June

This event, focussing on the theme of ‘early intervention and prevention’ was the second of our quarterly themed events to be held this year. These events aim to bring young people from across the region together with service providers, commissioners and strategists to jointly share and learn, in order to better meet the needs of young people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. 

 On the day, 20 young people from across the region participated in the event, feeding in their views and ideas to discussions.

 The event sought to provide an opportunity to clarify our shared understanding on what ‘early intervention and prevention’ means, both to young people and workers in the field.  We looked to share models of practice from education in schools on the realities of homelessness, to family mediation and planned pathways to living independently, including the benefits of local authorities implementing the 16-17 year old joint protocol as recommended by the Southwark ruling in 2009.
