Event description
Our two day showcase of FOYER LIFE, an evidence informed model aiming to end youth homelessness.

About this event

SEPT 15&16, 2021

EARLY BIRD TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE

Eliminating youth homelessness in partnership with young people.

Join us at the JW Marriott Gold Coast as we showcase Foyer Life and bring together young people, policy makers, practitioners, accredited/accrediting Foyers and those with a passion to end youth homelessness from across Australia to learn, engage and network together.

Featuring a range of speakers and topics over 2 days, we will share how the evidence informed Foyer model and supporting partners/stakeholders can collaborate and commit to ending youth homelessness at a national, state and local level.

Showcasing topics such as:

  • The lived experience by our young people
  • Innovation, policy and funding within youth homelessness sector
  • Culturally safe and diverse Foyers
  • Impact and outcomes for young people post Foyer Life
  • Accreditation, practice, development and Advantaged Thinking
  • And many more to be announced as the program develops

Foyers provide a life changing opportunity to help reduce the numbers of young people experiencing homelessness, low education outcomes and access to meaningful career pathways for a brighter future.

Homelessness can be isolating, destabilising and often traumatic. For children and young people, homelessness can be particularly devastating to their development and the negative effects are often long-lasting.

Youth homelessness, youth at risk of homelessness and young people experiencing disadvantage is a significant social issue in Australia.

Every night 27,683 young people aged 12 - 24 years’ experience some form of homelessness, with a 10% increase from 2011 – 2016*

According to the Costs of Youth Homelessness Project (2016), Australia spends $747m dollars each year addressing youth homelessness and its related impacts.

Foyers are an evidence informed model that provide access to education, training, employment and social opportunities to help young people break the cycle of homelessness and welfare dependence.

We are delighted to invite you to join us at this National event and look forward to seeing you in sunny Queensland in September (yes, you can go to QLD!).
