Dear [NAME]

Youth homelessness remains a serious issue in Australia, exacerbated by the COVID-19 Pandemic crisis. During 2020, the weaknesses of our systems, programs and policies for young people were exposed. There is much to be done to solve the homelessness crisis young people are facing in Australia, will you help us? 

The 2nd National Youth Homelessness Conference, an initiative of Youth Development Australia and the National Youth Commission Australia, is creating the opportunity for those working in youth homelessness and housing, social services, research, policy, out of home care, education, and other stakeholders to come together to develop a National Strategy to end youth homelessness once and for all. 

Join us at the 2nd National Youth Homelessness Conference, from the 15th-16th of June

Across the conference, there will be the opportunity to attend a mixture of plenaries, workshops, and Q+A Panel discussions, with an exciting line up of presenters including:

  • Melanie Redman, A Way Home Canada
  • Jason Trethowan, Headspace
  • Ellen Jacobsen, HoMie
  • Néha Madhok, Democracy In Colour
  • Dr. Stephen Gaetz, Canadian Observatory on Homelessness
  • Elvis Martin, Youth Advocate (YDA, RUOK Day)
  • Pam Barker, YFoundations
  • Tobias, CREATE Foundation
  • Annemaree Callander, Brisbane Youth Service
  • Danni Forster, Youth Homelessness Advisory Council WA
  • Paul McDonald, Anglicare Victoria 
  • Plus many more!

Scholarships are also available to those who are experiencing financial hardship. 

We hope to see you there,

NYHC 2021 FAQs

Where is the Conference?

NYHC2021 is entirely virtual. You can join in from any location. Ticket holders will be sent email instructions on how to access the virtual conferencing software before the event starts. Please make sure you keep an eye on your emails in the week before the Conference begins. 

What are the ticket options?

This year’s conference will run across two days with ticket options including a full conference tickets, or a single day ticket for either day one or two. Concession prices are available for anyone under 30 years old.

This is an online event, shouldn't it be free?

Unfortunately, even running an event online costs money. The reason we have to charge for this event is to cover the costs of organising and producing the Conference. We are working to ensure that tickets can be offered at affordable low-cost rates. Any profits made after covering the event costs will be reinvested into grass-roots organisations including the National Youth Commission Australia.

Will there be AUSLAN interpreters and closed captions?

Yes, wherever possible we will provide AUSLAN interpreters and closed captions to make this event accessible. If you have any other specific accesibility requirements please let us know via
