We're working with the local Homelessness Service Sector to develop a Homelessness Sector Action Plan (HSAP). The HSAP aims to address the growing challenges relating to homelessness within the Coffs Harbour Local Government Area (LGA) and work towards solutions.
Council provides the backbone support to the Coffs Harbour HSAP. This involves:
1. Developing an evidence-based research report to identify the critical local issues and themes relating to homelessness « We are here.
2. Preparing an action plan with activities to address the identified issues.
3. Facilitating regular action-based meetings with sector representatives for each theme identified in the research report. Meetings are an opportunity to monitor progress, build partnerships, and for Council to advocate for positive outcomes.
The HSAP is based on Collective Impact principles. Collective Impact is a collaborative approach to addressing complex social issues. Issues that no one agency, government department or organisation can solve on their own.
