Youth Homelessness Matters Day

Youth Homelessness Matters Day.

Youth homelessness matters today because youth homelessness matters everyday.

On any given night, more than 122,000 people experience homelessness in Australia – 1 in 4 of these people are under 24*. 

The people you see sleeping rough are the tip of the iceberg, representing only 7%*. Most people rely on temporary accommodation, couch surfing, or seeking shelter in a makeshift dwelling such as a car.

We know this is not good enough and needs to change! Every single one of these young people matters and deserves the support, love, and community to thrive and control their future.
