Yesterday I met with the Australian National Skills Commission with the goal of initiating changes in the employment landscape that will see more jobs available for people with housing insecurity and those experiencing homelessness.
More needs to be done to address the individual employment needs of those who need extra supports put in place, who want to and are ready to work.
We must have these conversations now so we will see a future where being unhoused is not a barrier to finding accessible, purposeful and enjoyable employment.
This is just the beginning but we are starting to get a glimpse of a much brighter more inclusive future.
