Spotlight firmly on hidden homelessness in Victoria

A full investigation into the causes of and measures needed to combat the hidden problem of homelessness  will be undertaken in Victoria.  Eastern Metropolitan Melbourne member Rod Barton presented a motion today calling for independent analysis of the changing scale and nature of homelessness across Victoria.

“We need to get a proper handle on this.  What has struck me since become a member of parliament is how many of our people are facing a crisis in housing and are in need of homelessness services, and how hidden this problem is,” he said.
