Youth Homelessness Matters Day is the annual national awareness day for youth homelessness in Australia. It's a day of celebration, learning and understanding.
Youth Homelessness Matters Day was started by a group of youth workers 20 years ago in Sydney. It aimed to raise awareness for the number of young people at risk of and experiencing homelessness within their community. The day has always taken place on the Wednesday of youth week.
The Aims of Youth Homelessness Matters Day are to:
• Raise public awareness about youth homelessness and the factors that cause it. Most people have an image of homelessness as being about older people sleeping rough on the streets. Also that youth homelessness is everyone’s business.
• Celebrate the resilience of young people to convey a message that young people experiencing homelessness are homeless, but not helpless! YHMD aims to communicate that with good support and accommodation young people can move forward and live their lives productively.
• Provide information to the general public about how they can help to end youth homelessness. Many community members are sympathetic to the plight of homeless people however often find it hard to know how they can help. YHMD aims to help people get not only facts and figures on homelessness but how to directly aid homeless young people in their community.
