Workforce Development Strategy

In response to The Road Home: A National Approach to Reducing Homelessness (2008) and as a part of the Tasmanian Homelessness National Partnership Implementation Plan for Tasmania July 2009-June 2013, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has committed to the development and implementation of a Workforce Development Plan for the Specialist Homelessness Services (SHS).

Shelter Tas has received funding to provide training to the housing and homelessness sector, through a subsidy to Type 3 workers. We are currently in the planning stage of the project and over the next 12 months we will announce a number of training opportunities.
