Unions calling for a Code Blue response to help homeless crisis

Every Tasmanian should have a safe place to sleep at night. Last week we stood with other unions in support for a Code Blue response to the current homelessness crisis.

A Code Blue response means the Hodgman Government would trigger emergency support for people sleeping rough when there’s severe weather. This measure would sit along side other, long term housing and homelessness responses. 

Code Blue is a measure used in South Australia, which ensures there’s shelter available in extreme weather conditions, and a contact for people who need help or those supporting them.
