There are many people in our society who, through no fault of their own, have been left voiceless.

When this occurs, it is all too often the youngest people in our communities who suffer.

As of June this year, there are 1203 children in out-of-home care in the state, a number that has increased in the last year.

We already know young people are over-represented in the Tasmanian homeless population and on any given night, about 190 people aged between 12 and 18 do not have a home to go to.

On top of this, Tasmania has particular challenges with low rates of educational attainment, particularly among children who are experiencing disadvantage.

We need to be working together, alongside all levels of government, community organisations and schools, to ensure our youngest citizens get the good life they deserve.[/text_output][gap size=”1.313em” id=”” class=”” style=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][text_output]
