Welcome Message: Council to Homeless Persons


Last year 279,000 Australians sought help from homelessness services, and over 100,000 of them were in Victoria alone. In the face of unprecedented demand for support, it is critical that the homelessness sector stays abreast of new policy solutions and practices being applied here and abroad.

The Victorian Homelessness Conference is an outstanding professional development opportunity for practitioners, policy makers, researchers and consumers of homelessness services.

Held bi-annually, the Victorian Homelessness Conference has earnt a reputation as the leading event of its kind in Australia.

This year, running in parallel to the regular conference programming there will be a youth-specific conference stream.

Keynote speaker, Professor Eoin O’Sullivan, is a leading academic in Europe and editor of the European Journal on Homelessness. Learn about the other speakers here.

I look forward to joining you in September as we enter two days of ‘Talking Solutions’. 

Jenny Smith

CEO, Council to Homeless Persons
