The ‘Recharge Conference’, organised by Y Foundations, was a chance to re-energise the conversation on youth homelessness. The two day program included presentations from nationwide peak services and agencies involved in working with vulnerable youth affected by homelessness. STARTTS’ Training Officer, Belinda Green spoke about the needs and experiences of refugee young people.
