Towards ending homelessness
Ending homelessness requires more than just housing. It requires affordable and stable housing, combined with appropriate supports to help people to stay in their homes and achieve improved whole-of-life outcomes.
Under the Housing and Homelessness Action Plan 2021-2025 (PDF, 3466.73 KB), the Queensland Government is committing an additional $20 million over 4 years to provide essential housing with support services for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
Under the Action Plan, we commit to:
- co-designing improved housing and homelessness system responses, including integrated service delivery across government and community services, with significant focus on mental health
- increasing housing for people in crisis and assist them to transition into longer-term housing with support
- enhancing coordinated housing and homelessness responses in priority locations
- equipping the government and community sector workforce to enhance contemporary responses to homelessness.
This is in addition to the whole of Queensland Government targeted funding commitment of $244.5 million for homelessness responses, allocated in 2020-21, including:
- five-year funding agreements with specialist homelessness services delivering effective housing and homelessness responses, including outreach, temporary accommodation with support, and mobile support services
- coordinated Housing and Homelessness Response in 9 priority locations, identifying and supporting people with complex needs
- the Homeless Hotline.
