Halve homelessness by 2025
The largest providers of homelessness services across Australia, including Anglicare Australia, recently joined forces to call on all political parties to make reducing homelessness a national priority.
As a member of Anglicare Australia, Samaritans is on board with the commitment to reduce homelessness.
In a joint letter to the four party leaders, the major charities Anglicare Australia, Mission Australia, Salvation Army, St Vincent de Paul, UnitingCare Australia and Wesley Mission demanded a commitment to halving homelessness by 2025.
On any given night over 100,000 Australians are homeless – including over 44, 000 children or young people. And each year more than 200,000 people seek help from homelessness services.
