Draft Homelessness Bill 2012 Submission
Aug 1, 2012, 00:00 AM
Anglicare Australia commends the Minister for Homelessness, the Hon Brendan O’Connor, for following through on the Government’s promise to establish legislation which enshrines a commitment to quality service provision aiming to end homelessness for people who are homeless or who are at risk of becoming so.
The draft Bill is a laudable addition to the foundational documents which represent the experience of homelessness in Australia and how we, collectively, mean to overcome it. There are, however, elements of the draft Bill which have given us pause and these, along with those elements that we would particularly like to commend, are provided for consideration.
