Auckland super-city council hopes to end homelessness on the streets by 2020

Auckland’s new super-city council wants homeless people off the streets by 2020.

The new council’s homeless plan will, among other things, seek to raise public awareness of homelessness, find permanent accommodation for vulnerable people living in temporary accommodation and aim to “empower vulnerable groups”.

“Those who sleep rough are at the sharp end of poverty and are the most visible to the public,” the plan reads.

But homeless people need permanent solutions, not just to be made invisible.
