Research into tackling unemployment among disadvantaged young people

This research for Centrepoint sought to understand what impact the government’s proposed measures to tackle youth unemployment would have on some of the most disadvantaged young people, particularly homeless young people.

The research involved interviews and focus groups with practitioners in the youth homelessness sector, homeless young people, employers and training providers. Desk-based research, including a literature review and potential analysis of national administrative datasets, provided broader context to the study.
