Description


National Youth Homelessness Conference


Tickets are now available for the National Youth Homelessness Conference.


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 required and the development of an agenda that we can advocate to Governments.


The National Youth Homelessness Conference will be the first national homelessness conference focussed on youth in Australia in 20 years.


The day and a half conference will involve keynote speeches from experts in the sector, panel discussions, a Q & A session, the release of a National Report Card on Youth Homelessness and the premiere of the follow-up to ‘The Oasis’ documentary- 10 years on, featuring many of the young people from the original documentary.

We have a variety of tickets available, with early bird prices on sale until 28th January, 2019. Full price tickets will go on say on the 29th of January, 2019.
