Abstract

This video presents the experience of a knowledge exchange programme on youth homelessness funded by SUII. The programme ‘Helping young people feel at home in Scotland’ involved 45 national and international organizations and sever youth consultations. The aim of this programme was to build up recommendations to improve practitioner’s approach towards young people experiencing homelessness, alongside with more integration and communications between services working with and for young people. The programme was partially developed in two urban cities of Brazil.

The knowledge exchange programme on youth homelessness ‘Helping young people feel at home in Scotland’, developed in 2019, produced this video documentary in three languages (English, Spanish and Portuguese). The programme was funded by SUII. Forty-five national and international organizations contributed with the programme throughout three main events and seven youth consultations. The programme was partially developed in two urban cities of Brazil (with support of the GCRF award).

The video presents the experience of this programme and brings the main recommendations built up by the participants to improve services and practitioner’s approach towards young people. It is addressed to students and practitioners’ training, and for all interested to prevent and to tackle youth homelessness.
