The Tasmanian Homelessness and Housing Workforce Symposium, held in 2016, brought together homelessness sector workers, consumers and Housing Tas representatives to discuss ways to improve engagement with people accessing homelessness services. A result of this event is a set of ‘how-to’ guides, that provide a practical resource for the sector and assistance in implementing discussed strategies for consumer consultation.
