In consultation with a broad range of our partners and key stakeholders, we have drafted a strategy that outlines four key themes where we can take leadership:

  1. Know our City – research, consult, refresh and share our knowledge of homelessness in Melbourne.
  2. Be inclusive – respect, hear, welcome and include those who are homeless in our services, activities and events.
  3. Develop skills – provide opportunities to enhance personal resilience, develop skills and strengthen social inclusion in order to avoid long term hardship.
  4. Create pathways – work with our partners to courageously advocate for change and create sustainable pathways out of homelessness.

Community engagement on the draft Homelessness Strategy 2014-17 concluded on 13 June 2014.
