Our Youth Homelessness Representative Council (YHRC) is a group of 10-15 young people (aged 18-25) who meet 4 times a year to discuss and take action on issues affecting children and 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
Applications are sought from young people (18-25) with lived experience of homelessness and an interest in youth issues.
