What we're doing

More information on what we're doing

This project worked in small focus groups with young volunteers from 4 Kirklees Senior Schools.

A school Nurse and Voice & Influence Worker supported young people in discussions and a lucky dip activity to see what they felt young people and their family would need if they became homeless.

The young people confirmed they liked the current procedure school nursing teams use to contact families who become homeless. They suggested using social networking and increasing their publicity in schools.
