Limerick Youth Housing Evaluation Report

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.
