  2. 2. The state programme in NRW Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny established in 1996 to support communities and non-communal institutions of the welfare sector (co-payment 20%) exemplary instead of structural funding with a focus on the prevention of homelessness (total volume per year ~ 1.1 million €) premises: innovation, orientation on social environment, transferability (funding period max. 3 years)
  3. 3. Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny The project WohnPerspektiven duration: 02/2010 - 02/2013 target group: young homeless people and those threatened with homelessness (aged between 15-27) aims: survey youth homelessness in 3 rural areas, develop and test different kinds of help resources: additional employees for the participating institutions, project management, scientific supervision and evaluation
  4. 4. Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny The project WohnPerspektiven survey interviews with key players of the support system and homeless people to learn about youth homelessness conferences to activate the dialogue between the different institutions of the support system public relations
  5. 5. Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny Findings about the target group youth homelessness in rural areas is an invisible phenomenon, no data concerning the quantitative dimension exists multiple problems underlie housing insecurity, permanent conflicts with parents / partners as main triggers clients and support system do not match!
  6. 6. Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny Findings about the target group everyday life family/ friends range of movement 5 kilometres changing housing situations in a small radius clients often search for private solutions beyond the institutional support system, especially with the help of friends and family
  7. 7. Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny Findings about the help system wide range of community facilities and social institutions in most rural parts of NRW as well no specific support system for the target group surrounding support system (e.g. Debtor Consulting Agency, Counselling Centre for Drug Addicts) is overstrained with youth homelessness
  8. 8. Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny Findings about the help system “marshalling-yard”: shifting the responsibility for young homeless people in rural areas on average 8 „false helps“ are necessary to get the „right help“ in the Housing Emergency Support

  12. 12. Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny Results of WohnPerspektiven general: networking is the missing link between clients and support system dialogue between the different stakeholders of social welfare has to become a routine benefit: less excessive demand and acceptable solutions
  13. 13. Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny We achieved a lot.. Results and findings of WohnPerpektiven were transferred across the state and to stakeholders. In some regions the co-operative model of preventing youth homelessness is working steadily. North Rhine-Westfalia is still operating its yearly statistics on homelessness and focuses regularly on youth homelessness. The state department for social welfare organizes dialogues between stakeholders of the homeless and the youth welfare services to find a connecting model for the prevention of homelessness and the support for young homeless people beyond local arrangements. Open end!
  14. 14. Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny But… There is no systematic funding or claiming of prevention networks for young homeless people. Local solutions depend on traditions, connections and political opinions. Young homeless men and women are a target group with only a small lobby especially in rural areas.
