Abstract

This paper explores research undertaken with young home(less) people in Sydney in which I specifically pursue ideas of home and belonging in the inner city. In a context in which young home(less) people are seen to ‘lack’ both identity and place, the responses of young people indicate the fragility and importance of relations of space and self.
