WACIT North America: Being young and homeless in the west is no fun either

WACIT was born to fill a gap in low and middle income countries, largely in systems with less developed specialist services. Its current 6×6 phase is not trying to compare, but rather to remind of service gaps for vulnerable youth in high income countries too. If anything, these are more baffling to understand.

The need here is for more designated services, joint care pathways with social care, wrap around or integrated approaches, and needs-led interventions.  NGOs have a large role to play, but this should not be a let-off for the statutory sector.
