Youths give homelessness views

Youths who were once homeless have been invited to Holyrood.

They have been asked to give their views to the Equal Opportunities Committee.

It is looking for evidence of progress following its 2012 report , which highlighted concerns such as the routine practice in some local authorities of treating some 16-year-old care leavers as homelessness.

Equal Opportunities Committee convener Margaret McCulloch said: "We hope that young people themselves will tell us whether any new approaches have been introduced and how effective they have been in addressing homelessness."
