The State Government is committed to working with its partners in the homelessness and domestic and family violence system, to get the best outcomes for people experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness.
The Future Directions for Homelessness outlines South Australia’s transformation plan for the homelessness system, through the SA Homelessness Alliances which will see the SA Housing Authority and the service providers working together to deliver better outcomes.
Our Housing Future 2020-2030
In December 2019, the South Australian Government released the ‘Our Housing Future Strategy 2020-2030’, a 10-year plan for better housing outcomes across South Australia. The strategy committed to working with the specialist homelessness sector to design a new system that will better meet the needs of South Australians experiencing homelessness. The 'Future Directions for Homelessness', the homelessness strategy released in September 2020, is part of these reforms.
The reforms aim to provide better services that:
- prevent people from falling into homelessness
- ensure people get the right support they need, when they need it
- rapidly rehouse people into safe, stable and long-term housing so they don’t cycle in and out of homelessness.
We are working to deliver a system-wide reform in the way homelessness services are delivered across South Australia with the intent to develop a more integrated and collaborative network of services to prevent and respond to the community’s needs. The reform recognises the power of collective impact approaches to addressing complex issues and the need to work together to address shared challenges.
