Youth Homelessness on the rise
Up to one in seven young people could be at risk of homelessness, according to a recent report by Mission Australia.

The organisation and others in the youth sector are pushing for greater funding to support early interventions with young people at risk.
Panorama reporter Sally Hayles spoke to researchers and those working with youth about the challenges and what could help.
