2018 – Youth Coalition of the ACT Submission to the ACT Budget 2019-2020

This submission to the 2019-20 ACT Budget puts forward our recommendations relating to the most urgent priority areas for young people in the ACT. Our primary recommendation is the allocation of additional funding to implement a service model to prevent homelessness for children aged 8-15. The unmet accommodation and support needs of children under the age of 16 who are homeless have been identified as a critical gap in the ACT for close to 20 years, but never adequately addressed. Other urgent priorities in this submission relate to out-of-home care and education.
