FAQs - the Databank

What is the Youth Homelessness Databank?

The Youth Homelessness Databank brings together information from local and central government in the UK to explore the true picture of youth homelessness in the UK. It is open for anyone to use.

To tackle and ultimately end youth homelessness, we must improve our understanding of how many people experience homelessness across the country and what happens to them once they seek help. This collaborative project aims raise awareness of youth homelessness through open and easily-accessible data, and in doing so, help communicate a more realistic image of youth homelessness than official data sources currently provide.
