Victorian Homelessness Networks

How can we help?

Whilst there are some regional differences the Networks deliver many similar activities such as:

Forums for Practitioners on various themes relating to Homelessness & Family Violence

Secondary consultation and suggestions for staff from the Specialist Homelessness Sector and those from allied sectors about issues like navigating the system, training, & how to access specific kinds of homelessness support

Agency visits to services to talk about the impact of homelessness in the community and how the Homelessness Service System works to assist people experiencing or at risk of homelessness

Email distribution lists that staff can join to receive regular updates and information on training, conferences, policy changes, employment opportunities and much more

Facillitation of regional working groups on specific issues with a view to coming up with solutions to service gaps or barriers

Joint Submission or articles on homelessness & housing related issues

Buidling relationships between services and sectors through networking and sharing skills and expertise
