The homeless rate across the country is 50 people per 10,000, with high numbers of homeless both in highly populated city centres but also in regional areas., living rough or ‘couch surfing’ every night. On any given night in Australia 105,000 people are homeless. Nearly half are under the age of 25. That’s 44,500 young Australians whom are without safe, secure shelter. Youth aged 15-25 make up 50% of the total homeless population in the country. Young peoples’ homelessness is caused by family breakdown and violence. Poverty and lack of affordable housing underpins and compounds the situation.
