About the Clearinghouse

The Australian Homelessness Clearinghouse is an online tool designed to help tackle homelessness in Australia. This site is available to share resources, ideas and information.

This site is funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services. It is intended to be a dynamic information website that contains:

  • Current news and events
  • Information about good practice
  • Research and data
  • Experience and management centred on the issues of homelessness and the people and organisations working in the sector

Homelessness is a dynamic and immediate issue that reaches deep into Australian society. Collaboration and access to information are critical tools in the response to homelessness in Australia. As a central point for information, the Clearinghouse is one mechanism in this response.

Over time the Clearinghouse has built a large volume of information covering all aspects of homelessness in Australia.

The site managers are keen to hear the feedback of site visitors. Please provide suggestions, comments and content. Contact us.

In improving the site to meet the needs of the sector, the Australian Homelessness Clearinghouse will be truly effective in its contribution to tackling homelessness in Australia.
