A South Yorkshire MP has thrown his weight behind a campaign to end youth homelessness in the UK.

John Healey has joined charities and businesses to form the End Youth Homelessness Alliance in an attempt to reduce the number of young people on the streets by offering coaching, mentoring and apprenticeships to help them find employment.

Mr Healey, MP for Wentworth and Dearne, said: “I felt it was very important to be involved in the Alliance.

“Homelessness is an issue that has a huge impact on young people, adults and families in my constituency and any attempt to bring organisations together to help tackle this has my full backing.”
