Solutions to homelessness

We can end homelessness in Victoria

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.
