The Inner City Youth at Risk (ICYAR) Project was a partnership drawing together 21 government and non-government organisations to target and respond to young people who are experiencing homelessness and/or are at risk of homelessness in the inner city of Sydney. The Social Policy Research Centre (SPRC) was commissioned to report on the ICYAR Project model. The report reviews relevant literature, includes qualitative data on project partners’ experience of working within the ICYAR model, success factors and limitations of the ICYAR model, and a comprehensive overview of how to establish a project such as this in any other geographical location. This is the third of three projects on ICYAR conducted by SPRC.
