The Limerick Youth Housing (LYH) is an innovative initiative approach to delivering youth homelessness services available to young people at risk of homelessness in several locations in Ireland. It is a collaboration between Focus Ireland, Tusla, and the local authority. Two notable features of Limerick Youth Housing include: young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness offered stable and secure housing, local services work collaboratively, and in an interagency manner to ensure that young people receive a range of support so that they can sustain their tenancies as they transition into adulthood.
The evaluation explores the extent to which young people are achieving positive housing and non-housing outcomes. The aim has been to identify the key ingredients that work well to inform future development and any replication in youth housing.
