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

The study found teenagers experiencing family conflict and breakdown are facing greater risks of becoming homeless.

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.
