Tasmanian Couch Conversations on YHMD

Does youth homelessness matter in Tasmania?

This Youth Homelessness Matters Day, community partners Colony 47, Youth ARC, City of Hobart and the UTAS Homelessness ColLAB are joining forces to ask the question, ‘Does youth homelessness matter in Tasmania?’

We aim to raise awareness of youth homelessness in Tasmania and the early intervention approaches needed to prevent it.

We’ll have some couches set up in Elizabeth Street Mall, Hobart that have been decorated by young people in our community. We’re not sure if they’ll be comfy but they’ll definitely be conversation starters.

We will also have information about an Australia-wide petition calling for a National Standalone Child and Youth Homelessness and Housing Plan.

Everyone is welcome, come along to sit, chat and connect.

Just rock up!
