    Tickets are now available for the 2019 National Youth Homelessness Conference - March 18-19.

    One in four Australians experiencing homelessness are children and young people aged 12-24, and this is widely acknowledged as an underestimate. Despite government initiatives to reduce homelessness, the number of people experiencing homelessness, particularly young people, has increased disproportionately to population growth in the last 10 years. Current systems are not working and they are failing vulnerable, young Australians.

    This conference will look at what has or hasn’t happened to address youth homelessness in the past 10 years, what we have learnt works, what reforms are...
