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.
The overall aim of the YHRC is to:
Engage with young people in decision making around issues that affect young homeless people
Provide young people with a platform to voice concerns on issues that matter to them
Provide opportunities to collaborate with young people about policy and program development
Provide an opportunity for member services and government to consult with young people about the proposed practice and policy changes
Engage with the sector and ensure we are bringing together the collective voice of young people
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.
