21 Nov Emergency Homes for Young People
We were honoured that our project for @sftslondon features as a contribution to the debate about #homelessness in this new @RIBA supported campaign by @moco_arch and @johnmcaslanpartners
The number of young people recorded sleeping rough increased by 50% from April to June 2020, and yet there are currently no guidelines for the design of emergency accommodation for young homeless people. Are you shocked? We are too.
We support the urgent need to raise emergency accommodation standards and stand alongside Miranda MacLaren, Polina Pencheva and Heather Macey in the campaign supported by @RIBA, calling for local authorities to adopt new recommendations for longer-term solutions to the homelessness crisis.
