Report – Young people's experiences of homelessness: Findings from the Youth Survey 2017

2 August 2018

This report from Mission Australia found that one in six young people surveyed have experienced homelessness.

This report has been published by Mission Australia.

Drawing on data from Mission Australia's Youth Survey 2017, this report focuses on the experiences of young people and homelessness. It provides insights into the housing experiences of young people, including details about recent living arrangements, frequency of moving residence and experiences of homelessness over their lifetime, both with and without a parent.

Implications for policy and practice are drawn from the data, including case studies and examples of programs aimed at prevention and early intervention.

Access the report via the Mission Australia website.
