The Tasmanian Homelessness and Housing Workforce Symposium was held on 23rd June 2016 in Hobart. The Symposium 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, which will provide a practical resource for the sector and offer assistance in implementing discussed strategies for consumer consultation. The ‘how-to’ guides will be developed by a Resources Advisory Sub-Group (made up of service providers nominated from the WDS Reference Group and consumers who attended the Symposium), and to ascertain their effectiveness they will be used by services before a follow-up forum in 2017.
