AUGUST 31st and SEPTEMBER 1st, 2022

The Foyer Foundation National conference showcased the knowledge, aspiration and financial innovation which continues to grow accredited youth Foyers across Australia.

Delegates heard from youth ambassadors as they co-host Q+A sessions, workshops, big idea pitches and breakouts.

Local and international experts unlocked the relationship between youth homelessness, whole of government involvement, impact investment and deep listening. Delegates engaged in evidence-informed strategies with experts in the Foyer marketplace.

People who were new to Foyer Advantage, or already engaged in a youth Foyer, gained insight, knowledge and learnings.

Delegates networked with service providers, business and government leaders, philanthropists, impact investors and young people as they revealed what makes Foyers so essential in Australia today.

We celebrated the journeys of our Youth ambassadors on their paths to independence, and the impact and reach of a future foyer movement in Australia.

Beyond youth homelessness



Foyers provide a life-changing opportunity to help reduce the numbers of young people experiencing homelessness. They enable young people to achieve their education outcomes and provide access to meaningful career pathways for a brighter future.

There are too many young people in Australia who are either homeless or at risk of homelessness due to the fact that they have experienced disruption, mental health issues or trauma.

According to the Costs of Youth Homelessness Project (2016), Australia spends $747m dollars each year addressing youth homelessness and its related impacts.

Foyers are built with an evidence-informed approach that provides access to education, training, employment, support services and social connections to help young people break the cycle of disadvantage and homelessness and create a path of independence.

Foyer Foundation sincerely thanks our sponsors for supporting our Foyer vision and helping make our Annual Conference possible
