    Housing First is an evidence-based way of responding to chronic homelessness and rough sleeping.  Housing First means offering affordable housing to people experiencing homelessness as quickly as possible, removing potential barriers and providing the supports they need to avoid returning to homelessness for as long as supports are needed. Find more information on the Housing First Principles by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute. 

    Case study: a housing model based in Camperdown in inner-city Sydney using Housing First principles. The program provides services that are tailored to individuals in order to help people transition to permanent accommodation and assist with other needs. Read the report by University of NSW, Sydney.
