Time line of young people - homelessness trajectories

Activity: Other activity typesPublic engagement and outreach - public lecture/debate/seminar


The aim of this activity was to build trust among participants of the Knowledge Exchange programme on Youth Homelessness 'Helping young people feel at home in Scotland' and the research team to identify key life events related with their homelessness trajectories and the service provision available for them across childhood and adolescence periods.
Methodology: Two researchers, five young people involved and two youth workers were involved on this activity that started with an external lunch together in the city centre of Dundee, in a place that young people choose to go. The lunch was a moment of free interaction. When the group returned an art approach was adopted and the group produced a collective timeline.
Outcomes: the production of a panel with positive and negative life experiences linked with their homelessness trajectories alongside the identification
of services that were/were not available for them.
