Who We Are

Homelessness Australia is the national peak body for homelessness in Australia. We provide systemic advocacy for the homelessness sector. We work with a large network of organisations to provide a unified voice when it comes to preventing and responding to homelessness. Until December 2014 Homelessness Australia was funded by the Federal Government. Between 2015 and 2022, it operated on a voluntary basis with no staff but appointed a CEO in November 2022.

Our Vision

To proactively advocate and promote national policy and action to end homelessness and its impact upon the range of people it affects.

Our Objectives

  • To provide an effective national voice on homelessness and related issues
  • To be concerned with the well-being of individuals and groups experiencing or vulnerable to homelessness and to promote their well-being through socially just policies and programs
  • To undertake actions, research and policy aimed at:
  • Developing and promoting policies
  • Preventing the extent and effect of homelessness
  • Educating the community on issues relating to homelessness
  • To participate in and/or carry out programs designed to contribute to the elimination of homelessness and related issues
