Homelessness is a serious problem in Tasmania. It is largely hidden and impacts on all age groups. Around 40% of our 1,579 homeless Tasmanians are less than 24 years old, 15% are less than 9 years old, and increasingly older people are also facing homelessness.
National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness (NPAH) funds make a significant contribution towards the provision of services for people who are experiencing or are at risk of homelessness. Ending this funding would have a catastrophic impact on thousands of vulnerable Tasmanians.
