Joined-up practice: Five areas of exemplary practice for social workers and educators to re-engage homeless youth
MetadataShow full item record
Young people seen as 'at risk' are a substantial focus across a wide range of policy and practice fields in national and international contexts. This article addresses two of those fields, youth homelessness and youth failing to obtain a basic education that will give them access to employment and full community participation as active citizens. By comparing solutions to the problems of youth homelessness and youth educationally at risk, the article distils key meta-characteristics useful for both social workers and educators in mutually supporting some of the most at risk young people in our communities today. This is what the authors term 'a joined-up practice'.
