Contact Your Local Representative

This Youth Homelessness Matters Day we are calling on political leaders to commit to a national plan to tackle the homelessness amongst young Australians.

 A national plan to end youth homelessness would address the systemic issues that drive and exacerbate youth homelessness, including:

  • Family violence
  • Access to affordable housing
  • Youth justice
  • Young people on custody orders
  • A housing guarantee for young people leaving care
  • Young people leaving care
  • Child protection
  • Education
  • Youth unemployment

With a Federal election due in 2019, now is the time to contact your local representative to find out what their plans are to end youth homelessness. Find the contact details of your local politicians and email, write or message them on social media to ask them about a national plan to end youth homelessness.
