A call for new council to adopt a housing first policy

Oct 14th, 2016 | By | Category: Radio News

One of Wellington’s new city councillors wants the council to adopt a housing first approach to homelessness.

Brian Dawson, elected onto the Lambton Ward,  made homelessness a major focus of his campaign.

He says Housing First prioritises long-term housing for the homeless, followed by  ongoing social support.

The inquiry recommends central government adopt the policy, but he says council  should  adopt it too.
