This report outlines the framework for the Victorian Government’s response to provide housing and support to people sleeping rough across Victoria.

This report has been published by the Department of Health and Human Services, Victoria.

The report outlines an action plan based on recommendations made by Mr. Tony Nicholson, Executive Director of the Brotherhood of St Laurence, who was appointed as Chair of the Rough Sleeping Strategy to develop a long-term strategy to reduce rough sleeping in Victoria. Four key themes guide the action plan:

  • intervening early to prevent homelessness
  • providing stable accomodation as quickly as possible
  • support to maintain stable accomodation
  • an effective and responsive homelessness service team.
