PIAC’s submission to the NSW Government’s Homelessness Strategy consultation calls for the Government to report publicly against specific measurable targets for reduction in homelessness over the next 5 years.
In a detailed submission to the Department of Family and Community Services regarding its discussion paper, Foundations for change – Homelessness in NSW, PIAC identified that three key actions are core to the foundations for change to address homelessness in NSW:
- Create specific, measurable targets for reduction in homelessness over 5 years;
- Significantly increase the availability of crisis accommodation;
- Significantly increase the availability of affordable and social housing.
