"Young, Homeless and Forgotten" by Barry Stillerman is published by Grosvenor House Publishing

About the Book:

The current homeless crisis in the UK has become a major concern across a broad spectrum of society. In particular, homelessness is a tragedy for vulnerable young people, many of whom do not want a hand-out but rather an opportunity to lead a normal life. The issues raised in the book are supported by many real life experiences from young people in crisis.
The book:
o examines the current, false perception of youth homelessness;
o provides a better understanding of the required support needs;
o identifies deficiencies in the current provisions of housing and support;
o explores ways in which housing and support can be improved;
o considers the roles of the state, charity sector, private sector and the public;
o examines how to create a caring home to effect a transition to an independent life;
o considers the funding and resourcing to significantly reduce youth homelessness;
o considers what individuals can do to assist in the process.
The book examines initiatives that have proven to be successful in other countries and those that have succeeded in the UK. It moves past the current broad intentions of homeless reduction and considers the basis of a fully costed national plan that is monitored against performance, which if publicised should give rise to a greater trust in the process.
All royalties received from this book will be donated to youth homeless charities.

About the Author:

Barry Stillerman was born in London in 1953. Over the past decade, he has been working with charities in the UK and overseas to reduce youth homelessness. He sees the opportunity for more people to assist in taking action that can permanently reduce youth homelessness and has written "Young, Homeless and Forgotten" with this in mind. In the past, Barry has written financial self-help books including The Stoy Hayward Guide to Personal Financial Planning, Inheritance Tax - A Practical Guide and The Daily Telegraph Pensions Guide.

Extract from the Book:

"It is estimated that there are thirteen times more hidden homeless people in London than those who are sleeping rough and that 225,000 young people have stayed in an unsafe place because they have nowhere safe to call home. An added problem with this group is that some people may feel that if they have a roof over their head and there are support services available, they are a less urgent problem that other causes.

The inability for homeless young people to move forward due to the chaotic situation that they find themselves in is not well understood. Stories about how people lapse into homelessness (for example through drug and alcohol addiction) raise unproductive questions about whether this person (or any homeless person) is worthy of help from society. While substance abuse is not uncommon, the main reason among youth homelessness is relationship breakdown.

There are various support needs required by homeless young people covering issues such as mental health, substance abuse, poverty and criminality - in some cases a resort to petty crime has been a reflection of the need for food or a room at a hostel to get off the streets rather than a disrespect for property."
