Driving a sustainable end to homelessness through collaboration “The one-year transitional agreement for 2013–14 is an important first step towards an integrated and holistic response to homelessness beyond 2014” The Hon. Mark Butler 2013 Given partnership funding has been extended for another year, it is more important than ever to strengthen linkages between Specialist Homelessness Services (SHS) and mainstream services. The need for partnerships underlines just how important it is to break down the silos of mainstream providers when working with people experiencing homelessness. This conference will address the challenges associated with integrating SHS and mainstream services such as health, education and employment. Informative presentations and case studies will highlight the importance, development and implementation of a collaborative approach. This conference will address how to: •• Deliver responsive and flexible models for integration •• Foster relationships with mainstream providers for improved services •• Implement quality systems for multidisciplinary teams •• Understand the positive effects of streamlining services
