Explanation: This training session will focus on the Housing First proven approach that connects people experiencing homelessness with long-term housing as quickly as possible and without preconditions.

Housing First is guided by the belief that a safe home is a human right and a basic need that must be met before attending to personal issues. The model is based on evidence that people, even with long histories of homelessness, mental illness or addictions, can achieve housing stability in long-term housing if provided with the right supports.

Audience: New communities and existing Advance to Zero projects/campaigns or collaborations.

Price: $65+GST full price, free for AAEH members. If cost is a barrier for you or your organisation, please contact us

Establishing a Quality By-Name List Scorecard

Date/Time:

  • Sydney/Melbourne/Brisbane – Friday 19 Aug at 10:00 am AEST
  • Adelaide – Friday 19 Aug at 9:30 am ACST
  • Perth - Friday 19 Aug at 8:00 am AWST
  • Seattle, USA - Thurs 18 Aug at 5:00 pm PDT

Duration: 2 hours

Delivered by: Rian Watt, Strategy Lead, International & Initiative Large-Scale Change, Community Solutions

Explanation: Creating a by-name list of everyone sleeping rough in your community is a central part of efforts to end homelessness – but how do you create one, what do you need to do to ensure you are accurately assessing who is entering your homelessness system on an ongoing basis, and how do you know if the data you are collecting is accurate?

To answer these and many other questions, we have created a checklist (or scorecard) to help your community not just establish a by-name list, but ensure that it is a quality list that can be relied upon to help make informed decisions about prioritisation and providing permanent housing to those who need it.

This session will explain the scorecard and its various components including, for example, how to better understand the needs of certain populations of interest, including veterans, individuals or families fleeing domestic violence, and those experiencing chronic homelessness.

Audience: New communities and existing Advance to Zero projects/campaigns or collaborations.

Price: $65+GST full price. Free for AAEH partners and Advance to Zero communities. If cost is a barrier for you or your organisation please contact us.

Instructions: Event will be held online. Connection details will be emailed separately to the ticket holder.
