When home is not a safe place, where do you go? In this episode, we explore the complex issue of family violence and how it pushes young people into homelessness.
A collaborative report The Cost of Youth Homelessness in Australia Study found that 56% of young people experiencing homelessness had to leave home due to domestic violence on at least one occasion.
