The Youth Homelessness Representative Council (YHRC) is a group of 10 young people (aged 18-25) who meet several times a year to discuss and plan around issues affecting young people at risk of or experiencing homelessness.

Young people aged 18-25 who have a lived experience of homelessness and a passion to improve young people’s lives are encouraged to apply. We accept applications to join the YHRC on an ongoing basis.
