Save the National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness #SaveNPAH

On Wednesday 7 December, Q Shelter joined 200 other organisations in an open letter to the Prime Minister urging the federal government to extend NPAH funding.

Q Shelter joins our industry colleagues in urging the participants of December’s COAG meeting to end the uncertainty facing Australia’s homelessness system.
