“We have already invested $1 billion in funding homelessness services over four years to break the cycle of homelessness, but we cannot be complacent, and by signing this agreement, we are pressing to do more.” Unfortunately, we know that those who are vulnerable to homelessness – even if you have a roof over their heads – need this support in orbit with other services to ensure their independence. “Homelessness is a complex social problem that cannot be solved by government alone, which is why we will invite the best and brightest in the front and community to work with us to find new ways to combat homelessness on the streets. We are committed to working with our partners and the homeless sector as a whole to achieve our Prime Minister`s priority. This commitment builds on the work already underway to break the cycle of homelessness. “There is a global movement to end homelessness, and NSW is leading by example and helping other cities around the world set ambitious and achievable goals to end homelessness on the streets,” Casey said. Building on the success of countries and cities around the world, ICJ is working with key global strategic partners to create “A Place to Call Home,” a global effort to support 150 cities to end homelessness on the streets by 2030. These efforts will serve as the basis for the pioneering work of a small group of cities working to achieve goals related to ending homelessness on the streets by 2020. We are closely monitoring the available data on this priority, as we were concerned that the COVID 19 pandemic and the recession could lead to an increase in risk factors for homelessness. The NSW government has signed a comprehensive agreement to halve homelessness on the streets by 2025.
