Youth homelessness policy brief forum – hosted by the Urban Youth Research Centre

Are you interested in (youth) homelessness policy and the intersection between strengths-based approaches and challenging harmful stereotypes related to experiences of homelessness?  

Dr Grace Tidmarsh is currently on a research visit out in Canada, where she is visiting Carleton University’s Urban Youth Research Centre in Ottawa. Grace will be delivering two in person talks relating to work on strengths-based delivery style and evaluation as well as challenging harmful stereotypes surrounding homelessness through public engagement and policy. She will also be facilitating a free, online, policy brief knowledge exchange forum and would love to see you there!
