National Housing and Homelessness Agreement (NHHA) Review Submission to the Productivity Commission, March 2022
Thousands of children and young people continue to experience homelessness across NSW. While children and young people are a target cohort in the NHHA, they often fall through the gaps. The NHHA has failed our children and young people and will continue failing them if something isn’t done urgently. The 2021 Homelessness Inquiry Report conducted by the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Social Policy and Legal Affairs (Parliament of Commonwealth Australia, 2021) demonstrated a lack of focus on young people, identifying them intermittently in the report and minimal recommendations without any real substance.
