Youth Homelessness Matters Day

Wednesday April 15 was no ordinary hump day, but Youth Homelessness Matters Day.

Those of us lucky enough to have a nice, safe place to call home and tuck into a warm, comfortable bed at night might question, how much of an issue is youth homelessness?

Panorama reporter Emma D’Agostino chats to the Salvation Army, Swinburne University, Melbourne City Mission, Frankston City Council and the Council to Homeless Persons (CHP) to find out.

(Spoiler alert: It’s a big issue.)

Things to keep an eye out for:

  • Opportunities to join Melbourne City Mission’s Youth Action Group
  • The State Government’s response to CHP’s call for a guaranteed housing fund for young people leaving state care. 
  • Frankston City Council’s fundraiser for increased homelessness services
  • The second installment of The Cost of Youth Homelessness in Australia, due later this year.
  • The Salvation Army’s Red Shield Appeal.
