ADVOCACY

Sharing the conversations with people we meet on the streets to a broader Australian audience.

 

Our Policy and Advocacy team aims to build connections with people experiencing homelessness. Through conversation and direct action, we strive to make sure people experiencing homelessness are heard in discussions about their future. 

 

In offices across the country, decisions are made about how funding and resources are distributed to homelessness - we want to improve the involvement and engagement of people experiencing homelessness in this process. 


In line with the mobilise vision, we ground our actions and publications on topics from conversations with people experiencing homelessness. If you’re interested in getting involved, would like to join an activity or just want to learn more - hit the get involved button top right to become part of the Mobilise community.
