Youth Homelessness Matters Day

Date: Tue, 28/02/2017

Youth Homelessness Matters Day 2017 will be held on Wednesday, 5 April 2017.
Youth Homelessness Matters Day (YHMD) is a national campaign, held annually, aimed at raising awareness of youth homelessness amongst decision makers and the wider community. Each year the campaign culminates in an awareness day for youth homelessness, held in the middle of National Youth Week.It will take place online and in communities around Australia.
This year we are advocating for a national plan to coordinate action and end youth homelessness. Youth homelessness is an issue that can be addressed if we all work together together on the solution.
