Youth Homelessness Action Plan

To ensure that The Plan is tailored to the experiences of young people, we must ensure that The Plan is being driven by their voices.

The Western Australian Alliance to End Homelessness (Alliance) is comprised of a group of sector organisations that have come together to galvanise a community response to homelessness in Western Australia. The Strategy, which the Alliance developed is intended to provide a broad framework for the process of ending homelessness and create signposts for action. A critical component of these signposts was the development of further plans for specific communities, groups and regions.

The Youth Homelessness Action Plan (The Plan) is specifically tailored to addressing the needs of young people experiencing homelessness, not only those in crisis but as a holistic attempt to prevent and end youth homelessness in Western Australia.

As an organisation supporting the goals of The Alliance, The Youth Affairs Council of WA (YACWA) is committed to ensuring that this Plan provides a clear blueprint for any community organisation looking to contribute to ending youth homelessness.

YACWA have developed this Plan in close consultation with a Homelessness Youth Advisory Council that comprises 10 young people with lived experience of homelessness, and a Co-Design Team that consists of key youth sector organisations and government agencies that work with young people experiencing homelessness.
