For service providers

About the homelessness sector

People who are homeless or have high support needs require extra help to find the right housing solution that delivers stability, quality of life and a sense of security.

The Government partners with  housing and homelessness sector agencies to provide  supported accommodation services for:

  • young people
  • families
  • single adults
  • those experiencing domestic violence.

There are some additional services for Aboriginal people.

Round tables

Representatives from government, non-government  and other specialist service providers meet regularly at regional round tables. The aim of the round tables is to:

  • improve collaboration and ensure integrated services are provided to customers
  • identify local homelessness issues to improve responses in each region to customers
  • ensure client-focused service standards are in place
  • provide leadership and direction to the evaluation processes
  • reinforce a case management framework
  • support service providers to comply with the standards and performance expected under their service agreements with Housing SA

Each round table develops a regional alliance plan to outline how it will reduce homelessness. These plans are linked to state-wide planning processes.
