From the CEO

VincentCare has taken a significant step toward bringing our vision for the redevelopment of our Inner Melbourne Hub into reality, having now received Planning Approval from the City of Melbourne.

Through the expansion of our crisis accommodation services and the establishment of a dedicated Homelessness Resource Centre on the same site, we will have a co-located accommodation and service platform that will be a Victorian first. Full details of the VincentCare Inner Melbouurne Redevelopment are available here.

The National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness (NPAH) will be extended for 12 months with some indexation. This is a welcome result for VincentCare Victoria and over 200 other community organisations and 40,000 individuals who lobbied the Prime Minister in support of NPAH. 

VincentCare Victoria joins with more than 200 organisations from across Australia in seeking the Prime Minister’s urgent intervention to avert the human, economic and policy disaster that will occur if the National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness (NPAH) is de-funded in 2017.
