Australian Zero Homelessness Summit 2024

We know that ending homelessness is possible, but only if we work together in new ways.

The biennial Australian Zero Homelessness Summit brings together organisations, communities and individuals committed to ending homelessness.

This year, the Summit is being co-hosted by the Australian Alliance to End Homelessness (AAEH) and Western Australian Alliance to End Homelessness (WAAEH).

The Summit provides an opportunity for people and organisations across a broad range of sectors, industries and levels of government to come together and work towards an end to homelessness in Australia.

The Summit will facilitate the opportunity to hear directly from communities around the world that have ended homelessness or are making significant progress towards this goal. It will also showcase the efforts of Australian communities working to end homelessness through Advance to Zero (AtoZ), as well as other initiatives under the WAAEH’s 10-year Strategy and the AAEH’s Allied Networks.


Wednesday October 16

  • 8am-5pm: Australian Zero Homelessness Summit @ The Esplanade Hotel Fremantle
  • 5pm-7:30pm: Summit networking event @ Harbourside Freo


Some of the speakers at the Summit will include:

  • Rosanne Haggerty, President and CEO of Community Solutions, housing and community development leader and founder of the Common Ground model of permanent supportive housing from the United States.
  • Lorraine McGrath, CEO of Simon Community Scotland, who has been closely involved in the homelessness reform efforts and progress made in Glasgow, Scotland.
  • Iain De Jong, President and CEO of OrgCode Consulting. With almost three decades of experience working on responding to homelessness, Iain has held leadership positions in the non-profit sector, government and the private sector.
