2022: YACWA Pre-Budget Submission 2023/24 Summary Document

YACWA is proud to announce the launch of our Pre-Budget Submission for the 2023-24 WA State Budget, titled A New Agenda for Young People in Western Australia.


2023: Housing First for Youth Project Report

After working closely with the State Government and the youth sector to build collective understanding of Housing First for Youth (HF4Y) and emphasise the need to include it in WA’s youth service landscape over the last couple of years, YACWA identified that further work was needed to build understanding of HF4Y in WA and identify what is needed to facilitate the successful piloting and implementation of the approach in WA.

YACWA is a united, independent and active advocate for the non-government youth sector and young people.

Focusing on young people’s varied needs at local, State and Federal Government level, YACWA works to engender and enhance positive community attitudes towards young people. Our work is guided by the values of respect, equity, integrity and the celebration of diversity.
