Don’t Close the Door on Homelessness Services.

The Federal Government is about to make a decision on whether to cut funding to homelessness services by over $50million.

If this support is withdrawn, hundreds of workers in frontline homelessness services will lose their jobs and many critical services will be cut. This at a time when homelessness services are experiencing a surge a demand due to the impact COVID-19 on jobs and on our economy.

In the last year 290,500 Australians sought help from specialist homelessness services.

These critical services support people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, including vulnerable groups such as women and children escaping domestic and family violence.

If the Federal Government does not commit to ongoing funding, critical services will be closed and jobs lost in this female-dominated workforce across Australia.

We are calling on the Federal Government to do the right thing and Save Homelessness Services.
