Who is the Specialist Homelessness Services Workforce in Victoria?


A priority goal of the SHS Transition Plan is to Build a SHS workforce development strategy

As part of this goal, an SHS Workforce Development Strategy 2020–2025 was completed, which included the aim of developing a sound knowledge base about our workforce.

The Workforce Innovation and Development Institute (WIDI) at RMIT University was engaged by CHP to identify the best ongoing approach for routinely collecting and analysing SHS workforce data.

This report outlines a two-pronged approach to collecting, analysing and sharing workforce data, to create a meaningful understanding of the SHS workforce. This approach could also be adopted by other areas within the social services sector that seek a better understanding of their workforces.
