From couch surfing to seeking support

Eurobodalla Council’s Youth Committee has collaborated with local services to create a short film on youth homelessness.

The film, shot through the eyes of a young person, depicts challenges around not having a secure place to stay. The story emphasises their journey from couch surfing to seeking support from Campbell Page and the Moruya Youth Refuge.

Council’s youth development officer Ashley Darby said young people often don’t know what services or support is available.

“The youth committee wanted to help address homelessness locally and found out what was needed by services on the ground, using their creativity to help organisations like Campbell Page,” Ms Darby said.

“Last year, Campbell Page assisted over 200 homeless or at-risk young people along our coast.
