Victorian Homelessness Conference 2023

Overcoming Challenges. Ending Homelessness.

Monday 20 – Tuesday 21 November
Melbourne Town Hall

Hosted by:

The Victorian Homelessness Conference occurs every two years and is an opportunity for Victoria’s specialist homelessness sector to come together to share, discover, and learn over two jam-packed days.

It is a not-to-be-missed event for practitioners, policy makers, frontline workers, managers, and those with the experience of not having a home to learn about the latest research and practice innovation – both in Australia and overseas –exchange ideas with colleagues, explore new challenges and, together, help shape a better future.

Overcoming challenges. Ending homelessness.

While there can be multi-level barriers to securing affordable and appropriate long-term housing, we remain committed to the belief that ending homelessness in Victoria is within our reach. 

The theme, Overcoming Challenges. Ending Homelessness. is a starting point to explore the political, social and individual challenges faced by our sector and by people without a home, and to share ideas about how these challenges can be overcome to achieve our shared goal of ending homelessness in Victoria.


The 2023 program includes the latest insights in homelessness practice and prevention, new research, and ongoing challenges in policy and practice.


The conference will be welcoming an exciting line-up of speakers, including sector leaders, experts and researchers, and – most importantly – people with lived experience of not having a home.
