Our 2024-25 Victorian Budget submission is out now
Council to Homeless Persons has released its 2024-25 Victorian Budget submission. It states that our homelessness system stands at a critical juncture, and that the government must urgently address the immediate housing crisis, whilst simultaneously developing and investing in a strategy to end homelessness in Victoria. To achieve this, we have asked for funding across seven important measures.
Mental health first aid training
CHP is hosting a 2 day, in-person Mental Health First Aid training course in Melbourne’s CBD on 4-5 March. Using a practical, skills-based action plan, participants learn the skills to recognise and respond to someone experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis, until professional help is received or the crisis resolves.
Find out more and book through the Learning Hub.
Person-Centred Practice Guide
Person-centred practice seeks to partner with people who are without a home to deliver holistic, strengths-based and trauma responsive services, centering practice on what is safe and meaningful to people seeking support.
CHP’s new Person-Centred Practice Guide has been developed to assist the SHS workforce develop a shared language and understanding about what a person-centred approach to service provision is and how to integrate it into current practice.
