Event description

Believe that ending homelessness is possible? 

Want to discover how communities across Australia are charting a path towards ending homelessness?

With the generous support of our major event sponsor, Neami National, the Australian Alliance to End Homelessness (AAEH) invites you to the Advance to Zero National Showcase to learn about how communities across Australia are working to end homelessness as part of the Advance to Zero (AtoZ) Campaign. 

The AtoZ Campaign is a groundbreaking national initiative of the AAEH that supports local collaborative community efforts to end homelessness, starting with rough sleeping – one community at a time. Using a range of proven approaches from around the world, communities are supported not just to address individual instances of homelessness, or even reduce overall homelessness, but to end it altogether.

The showcase will provide the opportunity to hear directly from communities involved with the AtoZ Campaign and explain how you can get involved. There will also be a presentation on the overall campaign, how it works, and what it’s seeking to achieve. 

With more than 30 Australian communities participating in the campaign, inspired by a growing number of communities in the US and Canada that have ended homelessness, this event is not to be missed. 

The event is being held to coincide with the AHURI National Housing Conference, October 10th-12th, 2023, Brisbane. 

Places are limited.

About the Australian Alliance to End Homelessness (AAEH):

The Australian Alliance to End Homelessness (AAEH) is an independent champion for preventing and ending homelessness in Australia. We recognise that the scale of homelessness in Australia is both preventable and solvable and that despite the common misconception to the contrary, we can end homelessness in Australia.  

Since 2013, we have supported individuals, organisations, governments and local communities to work collaboratively across sectors to end homelessness – not just at an individual level, but systemically.

Specifically, we work to prevent, reduce, and end homelessness by ensuring that everyone has access to the housing and support they need, so that any future incidents of homelessness are rare, brief and a one-time occurrence. This is how we define an end to homelessness. 

Through the Advance to Zero Campaign, our Allied Networks, and our Training and Advisory Services, we support local communities to demonstrate that ending homelessness is possible.

Ultimately, the AAEH exists to bring community, business and government together to inspire action for an end to all homelessness in Australia.
