Inaugural Australian Zero Homelessness Summit to take place in Brisbane

Communities around Australia dedicated to ending homelessness will converge in Brisbane for the nation’s first Summit to End Homelessness this month.


The sold-out Australian Alliance to End Homelessness (AAEH) Summit, taking place from October 26 to 28, will showcase proven and measurable strategies that have underpinned the successful end to homelessness in communities from Canada and the United States of America.


This is a unique opportunity for the more than 26 communities that are part of the Advance to Zero Campaign in Australia to learn directly from experts that have helped the eighteen communities in the USA and Canada.


The objective is to ensure everyone has access to the housing and support they need so that any future incidents of homelessness that do occur are rare, brief, and a one-time occurrence.


Included in the week of activities are training sessions, an Advance to Zero learning session and a series of workshops that will cover topics including:


● The role of data and improvement in ending homelessness

● Case studies from the success of US and Canadian communities that have ended homelessness

● Building an Australian Homelessness Vulnerability Triage Tool (AHVTT)

● First Nations homelessness

● Strengthening the role of lived experience voices in ending homelessness

● Building an Australian Supportive Housing System workshop

● Australian Health, Housing and Homelessness Network workshop (A3HN)

● Australian and New Zealand Common Ground Community of Practice.
