The Transferability of the "Safe in the City" Approach to Youth Homelessness Prevention in Canada

The objective of this study was to examine the transferability of Safe in the City (SITC), based in London, England to the Canadian context. SITC was set up in 1998 by the Peabody Trust and Centrepoint, a charity working with homeless and socially excluded youth. The goals of SITC were to help young people stay safely at home; find alternative options for young people who cannot remain safely at home; and develop the life skills and employability of young people to enable them to make a smooth transition to independent lifestyles. SITC was of particular interest for a number or reasons - the project was undertaken by a non-governmental organization (NGO).
