There needs to be better integration of services in the Homelessness sector. A start would be encouraging tighter grouping of services and interconnectivity. Different services in one place while at the same time providing choice so that it will show up services that need improving. The Homelessness sector is made up of a lot of relatively small services. There could be a benefit of having some of the larger organizations like DASA & Mental Health Services spend some time at some of the Homelessness Services to encourage better integration of delivery and a more multidisciplinary approach. This could be done by linking them with the teams of different sites like Westcare & Hutt St Centres.

I am interested in the points around private rental market reform and also "increase security of rental tenancies". A great way to increase the security of rental tenancies would be to eliminate unfair evictions where the landlord can evict tenants without needing to provide any reason. This would also give tenants more confidence to enforce their rights. In contrast, long-term leases are probably a bad idea as they risk locking people in to a lease which may end up not suiting them, and could be very costly to break.
