Stopping homelessness takes more than money - NGOs

From Morning Report, 8:24 am on 19 August 2019

Community organisations say the government's latest announcement to stop people becoming homeless will help stem the flow of people onto the streets.

However, they are warning it's hard to know whether the $54 million package, to be spent over four years, will be enough.

Chief executive of Lifewise Moira Lawler says that's due to a lack of baseline data, and no nationwide homelessness strategy to work to. She spoke to Corin Dann.
