Why was NYCH formed?

NYCH was formed to end youth homelessness and create youth housing solutions. The NYCH Constitution outlines the objects of the Coalition as¹:

  • To provide a national forum for non-government organisations concerned with the provision of, co-ordination of, and activities related to youth housing at State and Territory levels,
  • To make representation to, and where appropriate, co-operate with governments and other relevant organisations at Local, State, Federal and International levels in the pursuit of these objects,
  • To co-ordinate action around the issues of youth and housing, and other related issues;
  • To undertake research related to youth housing; and
  • To facilitate the development of a national youth housing policy.
