Accessibility and Inclusion

Register for NYHC2021

Youth Development Australia and the National Youth Commission value diversity and are committed to ensuring that the NYHC2021 is an inclusive and accessible event.

To support this, we are taking a number of actions to ensure the NYHC2021 is an inclusive event, accessible for all and reflective of the diversity of culture, background, experience, and belief that make up all of Australia.  

If there is anything we can do better to make this event inclusive and accessible, please let us know via help@yda.org.au

 

Acknowledgement of Country

Youth Development Australia, the National Youth Commission Australia, and the National Youth Homelessness Conference 2021 acknowledge that the work undertaken to organise this event is on the stolen land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded and wish to pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.

Scholarships

NYHC2021 will be granting a number of scholarships for people to attend the Conference, to ensure that the price of tickets is minimised as a barrier for attending. 

Young people, First Nations people, people from refugee and migrant backgrounds, LGBTQIA+ people, people with disability and people from rural or regional areas are all strongly encouraged to apply.
