Just as there is no single cause of homelessness, there is no single solution. Homelessness is impacted by large structural forces such as poverty, housing affordability, and social disadvantage. Therefore, it requires partnership and collaboration from a range of agencies to solve.
Someone may be without a home only once and need minimal support to secure a long-term property, while for others it may occur more frequently or their needs may be more complex. That’s why a range of prevention, support, and advocacy services are required to end homelessness in Victoria and Australia for good.
Campaigning and advocacy
Ending homelessness in Victoria requires action from state and federal governments – and everyone has a role to play in making this happen.
Campaigning for change is one of the most effective ways to make your voice heard and to forge impactful solutions with and for people experiencing homelessness.
