Youth Housing and Homelessness Forum

The Youth Coalition hosts the Youth Housing and Homelessness Forum (YHHF) every two months. The Forums are held on the first Tuesday of the month, from 9.30 - 10:30am. All services and government agencies are welcome. In 2017, the dates for the YHHF are:

  • Tuesday 7 February
  • Tuesday 4 April
  • Tuesday 6 June
  • Tuesday 1 August
  • Tuesday 3 October
  • Tuesday 5 December

 

The YHHF aims to provide a forum for housing and homelessness providers to improve their practice in supporting young people who are experiencing, or at risk of experiencing, homelessness in the ACT. The objectives of the YHHF are:

  • To provide further opportunity for all youth housing and homelessness providers to share information and identify collaborative opportunities;
  • To provide a forum to discuss, identify and address practice issues;
  • To provide an opportunity for housing and homelessness providers to feed issues that affect young people accessing their service directly to the Youth Coalition and to each other;
  • To identify and contribute to the evidence base informing practice; and,
  • To collectively progress strategic issues relating to housing and homelessness services in the ACT and surrounding area
