A new National Youth Housing Framework is being launched this morning at Parliament House by a national group of peak bodies and frontline services.

The launch is being hosted by the bi-partisan Parliamentary Friends of Housing Group and attended by a range of Government, Opposition and crossbench MPs.

The National Youth Housing Framework sets out three critical reforms:

  1. Develop and maintain 15,000 dedicated youth tenancies for 15-24 year-olds across Australia
  2. Provide linked support so young people can be safe, pursue their goals and transition to independence
  3. Address the rental gap to ensure viability for housing providers offering tenancies to young people

This work follows digs deeper into Australia's housing crisis for 15-24 year-old young people, reinforcing recent data releases showing decreasing rental affordability across the country. This group represents the hardest hit segment of the community.

The Victorian Government must immediately adopt all 61 recommendations of a parliamentary inquiry which has detailed a comprehensive blueprint to dramatically cut gambling harm across the State.
