To people sleeping rough in Melbourne CBD, the Daily Support Team works to directly connect people to housing supports and health services if required. The support team focuses on providing a rapid response for people who are new to rough sleeping as well as long-term rough sleepers in the CBD.
The Daily Support Team is an assertive outreach service, and support workers identify and build relationships with the aim to provide a pathway out of homelessness.
This program was developed in partnership with the City of Melbourne after an unprecedented increase in rough sleeping in the Melbourne CBD. The Daily Support Team was established in 2016 for rough sleepers within the City of Melbourne municipality.
