National Youth Commission report

The National Youth Commission into Youth Homelessness (NYC) was an independent community inquiry, the first since the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission inquiry in 1989 headed by Brian Burdekin. Progress has been made over the past 20 years but despite improved services and innovation homelessness remains a major social problem. Recent trends in the housing market and the increasing number of young people involved with the Care and Protection system indicate that youth homelessness could well worsen over the next 20 years.

The Commissions report is available at www.nyc.net.au
