Council to Homeless Persons has released A plan to end homelessness in Victoria, the Victorian homelessness election platform for 2022.

Tenants Victoria’s updated Family Violence Protection Tenancy Kit for community workers is out now.

The plan was developed by government funding provided to the Council to Homeless Persons (CHP) through DHSS and guided by an Executive Advisory Group (EAG), and leaders from across both the SHS and DHHS. The content of the plan reflects the input of consultations held with the SHS and others around the state in late 2017.
