Fears homelessness strategy has stalled

< 1 min read

CEO Clare Martin said that delivery of the promised $800 million to fund homelessness services was critical to getting people off the streets and into secure housing.

“We are concerned progress has stalled and final agreements are still to be signed off by state and federal governments,” said ACOSS CEO Clare Martin.

“Preventing homelessness before it begins is a key plank of The Road Home. The sooner people at risk of homelessness can access early intervention programs and integrated services the more protection they will have.”

“As the winter cold sets in, it is vital that rough sleepers have somewhere warm to sleep. Frontline services are reporting an increase in homelessness and crisis services are under greater strain,” she said.
