Homeless people have the right to decide whether they want to remain on the streets or move into a home. We can’t force them to move, all we can do is support them with their decision by providing them with food, warm clothing etc.

Similarly we need to get their views as to why they are on streets, then come up with interventions on how to help them.

Many people leave their homes to come and stay on the streets because of many reasons. Before understanding the causes why they are on the streets and looking for solutions to address the causes then forcing them back home doesn’t change anything because they will still come back on the streets

A child is too young to decide if they should live on the streets or not. Adults are supposed to care for children and advise them of the best way forwards. So yes in the case of a child I agree they should be housed even if they don’t want to be in their best interests.

No, we shouldn’t force them to leave the street. We need to first address the cause of them leaving home, resolve it and thereafter engage with them on the idea of leaving the street, if they accept to be taken home then take them home.

Is forcing someone to be housed a bit like putting them in prison?
(Amy UK at December 5, 2017 10:14 pm)
I agree that all children deserve to live in a home and would benefit from it, but it is a decision which is unique to every child and every situation. In some cases children may have chosen to leave home, in which cases they are likely to have a good reason for doing so.

At the @DianaAward we continue #PrincessDiana’s believe that young people, with the right support, have the power to change their world! We as adults have a responsibility to support and empower young people to play an active role in issues that affect them.

What kind of homes? Are they nice? Do they feel safe? Will they be given privacy and space? Will their friends be allowed to come with them? Will anyone make them follow rues if they move into the homes?

What sort of force? As it sounds like putting them in prison to get them off the streets if you force them.
(Will UK at December 5, 2017 10:52 pm)
Prevention is better than cure, forcing them won’t work, you need to fix the cause and device a means to help them stay at home.
(Sara Uganda at December 6, 2017 7:59 am)
Yes but they can’t listen to you if you do it by force,try to convince them and make them understand the reality,how they’re of great value to the world and not ruin the rest of their life on streets

In theory its a sensible idea but it cant be somewhere horrible. It needs to be somewhere that respects the persons rights and freedom.

Forcing someone to do something doesn’t help. He/she does, not as a wish but just because that’s what he/she is needed to do. I think homeless people need to be listened to and helped to make decisions of leaving streets by themselves.
(Faisal Uganda at December 6, 2017 8:00 am)
Sincerely speaking l don’t fancy the forceful mean of resettlement. This is because personal commitment and understanding makes one be a driver of their action and also leaves them taking full responsibility of their makings. Thus sitting down someone, taking their views and ideas n then elaborating to them the importance of leaving the streets is best mode, because you can forcefully resettle them n have them back again. Thus not a sufficient mode.

I was interested to learn about this project. Do you think discussion about issues like this can lead to change in the real world? For example if most people here agree that forcing people into homes isn’t a good idea – how can you make a difference with your ideas?

There are a few points to raise here: 1.The purpose of this movement & how does it serve the homeless youth? 2.Being cautious & conscientious of using the word “force” 3.Why are children/people on the streets? What resources are available to them & how sustainable is the project?
