Creating a future without youth homelessness

Youth Homelessness Matters Day Campaign


13th April 2016

Youth Homelessness Matters Day (YHMD) is an annual nation-wide campaign aimed at bringing the issue of youth homelessness to the public arena while also providing a mechanism that allows the general public to get involved. In 2015, the campaign will culminate in a national awareness day for youth homelessness in the middle of National Youth Week on 15 April, 2015.
