Crucial work on how to tackle housing problems faced by young people has been published. Housing Strategies for Youth: a Good Practice Guide is the result of a joint venture by the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH), the Local Government Association (LGA) and Centrepoint. It provides straightforward and unmissable guidance for workers in the field of housing young people at an important time.

The publication coincided with the launch of the government's new deal on training and employment for young people and the development of a new Young Homeless Action Partnership between government, local government and the voluntary sector.

Author Kate Folkard, policy and development officer at Centrepoint, said: 'The approach is unashamedly strategic and far-reaching. It offers the reader an opportunity to rethink housing strategies for young people in a broader context across the whole range of agencies involved - vital if we are to breakdown the barriers against young people accessing the housing they need.'

This book is the first a joint series of Good Practice Guides, from the CIH, long-time originators of respected professional briefings on housing issues, and the LGA.
