Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Action Plan

The Victorian Government is working to break the cycle of homelessness by intervening early, getting rough sleepers housed quickly and strengthening support services to keep vulnerable people off the streets.

Minister for Housing Martin Foley today visited Ozanam House in North Melbourne to announce more than $45 million in initiatives as part of the Victorian Government’s new Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Action Plan.

The Plan builds on a commitment to grow Victoria’s social housing supply, ensure better collaboration between agencies and improve support services for vulnerable Victorians.

It was informed by former Brotherhood of St Laurence Executive Director Tony Nicholson, working closely with frontline agencies. The Plan also reflects the work of the Rough Sleeping Taskforce – chaired by Melbourne Health’s Dr Ruth Vine.
