Pettition to Australian Federal Goverment

This Youth Homelessness Matters Day we are calling on political leaders to commit to a national plan to tackle the homelessness amongst young Australians.

 A national plan to end youth homelessness would address the systemic issues that drive and exacerbate youth homelessness, including:

  • Family violence
  • Access to affordable housing
  • Youth justice
  • Young people on custody orders
  • A housing guarantee for young people leaving care
  • Young people leaving care
  • Child protection
  • Education
  • Youth unemployment

We need your help! sign the petition and share it as far and wide as you can to help us get our message across. 

Sign our Change.org petition demanding a national plan to end youth homelessness.
