Victorian Homelessness Conference Update

Discover —- Share —– Grow

The 2019 program includes the latest innovations in homelessness practice and prevention, new research, and ongoing challenges in policy and practice.

Canadian keynote speakers Melanie Redman and Stephen Gaetz will discuss system reforms and practice developments in Canada, including the impact of the Canadian Housing Strategy, homelessness prevention initiatives, and the innovative Housing First for Youth model being trialled in multiple sites across Canada.

You’ll hear about the challenges and progress being made with the National Disability Insurance Scheme, the mental health system, and post-housing support. Connect with the latest developments in the homelessness policy framework in Victoria, and with the Aboriginal Housing and Homelessness Framework.

And, we’ll have a specific youth homelessness stream, to learn about policy and practice innovations for young people, including young people transitioning from out-of-home care, young people in rural areas, and young LGBTIQ people.
