Summary

Homelessness is a complex and growing problem, with devastating consequences for individuals, families and communities affected by it. It requires a flexible range of coordinated responses across the breadth of the family and community service delivery system and across government jurisdictions. While the Government remains fully committed to strengthening assistance at the crisis end, our ultimate goal is to work towards the prevention of homelessness. The National Homelessness Strategy presents a framework around which to design programs and policies that will lead to the prevention and amelioration of homelessness. This framework will inform and shape future policies and programs and will enable a holistic, strategic approach to be taken. The four themes of the National Homelessness Strategy - working together in a social coalition, prevention, early intervention, and crisis transition and support - reflect the Commonwealth's approach to ensuring that a strong modern social safety net exists for all Australians. It is consistent with the direction of welfare reform: meeting need at a point in time but also working together as a social coalition to prevent poverty and disadvantage by promoting social and economic participation.Frame
