Putting a roof over Australia’s homeless youth

On average, it is understood that over 100,000 people are homeless on any given night around Australia. Of this figure, 12 to 18 year olds represent the largest percentage and are the highest users of specialist homelessness services

With damning figures such as these, it’s no wonder campaigns such as Youth Homelessness Matters Day are warranted.

Tim Brunero spoke to CEO of the Serviced to Youth Council (SYC), Paul Edginton, about National Youth week and the SYC’s campaign for Youth Homelessness Matters Day.
