There are over 22,000 people in Victoria experiencing homelessness on any given night in Victoria. This includes people sleeping rough, people in crisis accommodation, staying temporarily with other households, as well as people in boarding houses and in severely overcrowded dwellings. Of these 22,000 people, nearly 6,000 are children under the age of 12.
This budget submission outlines the investments needed to help meet demand and reshape the homelessness service system to make sure it ends homelessness for individuals and families.
