Partnering with the State for Connections Week

As homelessness continues to increase, we are committed to working with Minister for Communities Gareth Ward to meet our target of reducing street sleeping by 50 per cent by 2025.

As part of Connections Week, a team from the City’s homelessness unit, workers from specialist homelessness services and the End Street Sleeping collaboration conducted a survey of people sleeping rough.

The survey helps to understand the needs of people who are homeless in order to design services to assist them best. It also helps us to understand why people are entering and exiting homelessness so we can focus our resources and work together to prevent homelessness from happening in the first place.

The City’s new homelessness plan will soon go on public exhibition for your feedback – you can read it here.
