Young, Homeless and Forgotten (Paperback)

Young, Homeless and Forgotten By Barry Stillerman Cover Image
Special Order


The current homeless crisis in the UK has become a major concern across a broad spectrum of society. In particular, homelessness is a tragedy for vulnerable young people, many of whom do not want a hand-out but rather an opportunity to lead a normal life. The issues raised in the book are supported by many real life experiences from young people in crisis.

The book:
- examines the current, false perception of youth homelessness;
- provides a better understanding of the required support needs;
- identifies deficiencies in the current provisions of housing and support;
- explores ways in which housing and support can be improved;
- considers the roles of the state, charity sector, private sector and the public;
- examines how to create a caring home to effect a transition to an independent life;
- considers the funding and resourcing to significantly reduce youth homelessness;
- considers what individuals can do to assist in the process.

The book considers initiatives that have proven to be successful in other countries and those that have succeeded in the UK. It moves past the current broad intentions of homeless reduction and considers the basis of a fully costed national plan that is monitored against performance, which if publicised should give rise to a greater trust in the process.

The author has previously written self-help books on financial matters including The Stoy Hayward Guide to Personal Financial Planning, Inheritance Tax - A Practical Guide and The Daily Telegraph Pensions Guide.
All royalties received from this book will be donated to youth homeless charities.
