Report exposes problems of youth homelessness

The extreme difficulties faced by homeless young people have been highlighted in a new report steered by a leading Charles Sturt University (CSU) academic.

The Cost of Youth Homelessness in Australia Study report is the first study of its kind in Australia and the largest ever undertaken internationally. The study was funded by an Australian Research Council (ARC) grant with chief investigators from three institutions including Professor in Finance Adam Steen, at CSU's School of Accounting and Finance in Bathurst.

"This three-year study of nearly 400 young people around Australia, including some from Orange in central western NSW, has major implications and challenges for policy-makers and service providers," Professor Steen said.
