Melbourne is one of the world’s most progressive and liveable cities, yet thousands of Melburnians are homeless today. We want more for Melbourne - a liveable city for all of us. We want to be Australia’s first city to end street homelessness.
Many people don’t realise that homelessness is solvable! The solutions are known – tried and tested internationally and right here in Melbourne.
We’re starting with ending street homelessness because it’s a health emergency. People sleeping rough on our streets are likely to die 30 years earlier than people in stable housing. It’s the most traumatic, dangerous and isolating form of homelessness. Ending homelessness is cheaper to solve than treat. It’s the crisis Melbourne can, and should, avoid.
We’re a caring city - showing it by publicly calling for change and taking actions, together.
From business leaders to your next-door neighbours, we're calling on every Melburnian to join the Melbourne Zero movement. There’s a lot we each can do to make a difference.
Together, we can make Melbourne a liveable city for all. Zero homelessness is possible!
