The Right Track Pack

The Right Track Pack is a resource about key housing issues and homelessness for youth workers in Wales.

The pack will not make youth workers experts on housing but it will enable them to pass on vital information to young people on getting and keeping safe, secure and affordable housing and also what to do if ever faced with homelessness.

The pack was updated in 2017.

Please contact our Education and Youth Officer if you would like to arrange a team/staff briefing on how to use the pack with young people.

Peer Learning Pack

The pack gives a step-by-step guide to all the elements required to facilitate a complete project. It covers all the steps necessary, ranging from advice on finding and then forming a working partnership, the training and subsequent accreditation of the Peer Educators, right through to the delivery of information by the group to secondary schools, Youth Clubs and other interested organisations.
