A Vanguard State
In November 2017, the City of Adelaide signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Institute of Global Homelessness (IGH) to become Vanguard City. Fast forward five years, in February 2022 South Australia has become the world’s second Vanguard state, helping to support ending homelessness, beyond Adelaide’s inner city and throughout South Australia.
This exciting partnership between State and Local Governments and the non-government homelessness sector, highlights a collective commitment between the seven signatories to work together toward ending street homelessness across South Australia.
Through this partnership, and with the vital support of the Premier of South Australia, Minister for Human Services, and The Lord Mayor of the City of Adelaide, the Australian Alliance to End Homelessness (AAEH) will work in partnership with the Institute for Global Homelessness and willing partners to build sector capacity, collaboration and exchange of ideas to achieve rare, brief and non-recurring homelessness state-wide by 2025.
