HEYYOU-T Swan Hill Off Road Outreach

By 07/06/2022No Comments

The HeyYou-T has hit the roads around  Swan Hill to provide outreach services to rough sleepers. The HeyYou-T is fully kitted out to carry food in a four-draw pie warmer, 133 cans of drink and serve 130 coffees at any one time. The HeyYou-T is part of the Homeless Assertive Outreach Response Program (HAOP), an initiative of the Victorian Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Action Plan.

The HAOP team provides:

  • Early intervention to prevent homelessness
  • Access to emergency accommodation
  • Access to specialist services such as mental health, drug and alcohol support, allied health and more.
  • Case management to support the complex needs of people experiencing homelessness & sleeping rough
  • Early intervention strategies, aiming to reduce the psychosocial impact of rough sleeping
  • Ongoing support offering for people to be relocated off the street and into safe and permanent housing
  • Innovative responses and support to people who may not engage with traditional services

To find the HeyYou-T you can call or SMS 0436 845 746 or go to our Facebook page.
