HOMELESSNESS in the Geelong and Barwon southwest region will be investigated through a state parliament committee on Monday. Community organisations and service providers will share their experiences with politicians from the Legislative Council legal and social issues committee.
Chair Fiona Patten said there was “unprecedented demand for services to assist people who are homeless or facing homelessness”.
“We will be hearing from organisations operating in the region about the needs they have and what can be done to help address homelessness in the southwest,” she said.
Ms Patten said representatives from The Geelong Project, working to reduce youth homelessness through early intervention, would be among those to speak at the hearing.
