In 2018-19, over 4,000 young people presented as homeless in Scotland due to family relationship breakdown (Scottish Government Youth Homelessness Statistics). Becoming homeless, or being at risk of homelessness, can have a devastating impact on health, life chances and mortality.

Through our National Survey and consultation work, the SCCR sought the views and opinions of young people (as well as parents/carers and professionals/practitioners) as to their needs and experiences of conflict and youth homelessness. When asked what they would find most helpful to learn about in relation to improving the way they manage family arguments, young people highlighted: communication, anger and family relationships/mental health and wellbeing.

At our free national event for young people held at Glasgow Science Centre, young people were given the chance to discover the science behind conflict and the brain, why we act and react the way we do and how to maintain the best balance to keep ourselves mentally, physically and emotionally healthy.

Following the event: 81% of young people reported feeling more able to deal with conflict in a positive and managed way and 70% agreed that what they had learnt would help them when trying to resolve conflict. Over 6,800 engagements with the digital, psychoeducational resources.
