  • he Road Home - The Australian Government White Paper on Homelessness  On 21 December 2008, the Prime Minister, the Hon Kevin Rudd MP and former Minister for Housing, Tanya Plibersek MP, released the Government&apos;s White Paper on Homelessness: The Road Home. The Road Home - Full Report Executive Summary Government Launches White Paper on Homelessness - Media Release by the Hon Tanya Plibersek MP The Road Home sets the strategic agenda for reducing homelessness to 2020. Homelessness can affect anyone and reducing it is everyone&apos;s responsibility. Working together, with national leadership and towards a common goal, homelessness can be prevented. Australia&apos;s efforts to reduce homelessness have to be urgent, as well as sustained. Specifically, The Road Home goals by 2020 are to: Halve overall homelessness; and Offer supported accommodation to all rough sleepers who need it. Future effort and investment should occur in three strategies of: Turning Off the Tap: Services will intervene early to prevent homelessness. Improving and expanding services which aim to end homelessness: Services will be more connected, integrated and responsive to achieve sustainable housing, improve social and economic participation and end homelessness for their clients. Breaking the Cycle: People who become homeless will move quickly through crisis system into stable housing with the support they need so that homelessness does not recur. Please Note: To obtain a hard copy of the White Paper on Homelessness: The Road Home, please call 1800 774 055 or email homelessness (homelessness@nationalmailing.com.au) If you made a Green Paper submission and provided your contact details, you will automatically receive a hardcopy of the White Paper as soon as it is available.
