AYAC Youth Welfare Survey Results

In response to the Australian Government’s review of the Welfare system, the Australian Youth Affairs Coalition (AYAC) conducted a consultation of young people who had experience of the Welfare System, via an online survey.This survey builds on AYAC’s 2012 report Beyond Learn or Earn: Young People Tell How Policy Can Better Support Those Who Need it Most.

Young people have given us a clear indication of their experience of communication, clarity of information flow, barriers and access issues, training and awareness of supports.
