Collaborating across sectors to end homelessness across Australia

Homelessness has increased 13.7% in the past five years, and is expected to rise further as a result of impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Never has there been a more critical time for Australia to put homelessness at the top of the political agenda. 


It’s critical to ensure individuals experiencing homelessness receive the appropriate support in order to transition out of homelessness. This includes ensuring services are accessible, holistic, culturally appropriate and person-centric, as well as putting a focus on prevention and early intervention models and transitioning out of homelessness pathways. 


The National Homelessness Forum will address the key challenges to tackling homelessness in Australia and ensuring that individuals experiencing homelessness are appropriately supported. Delegates will gain tools and strategies to tailor services and wraparound support, improve service delivery and how to develop cross-sector partnerships to streamline services and improve accessibility. 

Attend this forum and learn how to:

Create prevention and early intervention models to support people at risk of homelessness 

Develop tailored, culturally appropriate, holistic and person-centric services to ensure  that individuals receive the best possible support 

Develop collaborate cross-sector partnerships to streamline service delivery and accessibility  

Effectively transition people out of homelessness and provide post-homelessness support
