HOMELESS youth awareness campaign Make Change Happen is gathering momentum. City of Ballarat Youth Council has pieced together its ideas and solutions to housing issues for young people across the city.

A Make Change Happen brochure launch next week aims to keep the conversation alive in the community.

This follows the youth council’s youth housing forum, Only Three Pay Checks Away, in June.

The Make Change Happen launch will feature: Stories of Home, clips from youth council’s story pod project; responses to the youth housing forum; and stories from former youth councillors who have experienced housing issues, including Charlotte Sapwell who built her own tiny home.

Youth Council meets weekly, working to develop projects and advocate for young people in the region. 

The council has opened their launch to to community at Ballarat Library on Tuesday morning. For more details and to register, https://makechangehappenlaunch.eventbrite.com.au
