Young people's pathway
You can also view a version with subtitles
The young people’s pathway is designed to reduce and prevent homelessness and to improve the life chances of 16 and 17 year olds, care leavers and other vulnerable young people.
- ensuring that 16 and 17 year olds are not placed in BandB
- reducing the number of care leavers placed outside Camden
- integrating services around the needs of young people
The Children Act 2004 sets out a statutory requirement for local authorities and relevant partners to co-operate to improve the well being of children and young people.
The pathway represents a strategic and integrated approach to young people and homelessness. The key partners are supporting people, children schools and families, the housing needs group, community sector providers and other organisations.
The young people’s pathway incorporates the key elements of the pathway model:
- levels or stages of change and progress
- agreed “designated” referral agents
- timely move through and move on
- standard operational documents and plans
- core principles and minimum standards
- community safety and locality management
The young people’s pathway also includes the pathway’s four key stages of assessment, specialist support, progress and move through, although the model has been amended to emphasise the importance of assessment and to reduce the potential number of moves.
