Housing & homelessness

Housing on the Gold Coast

Homelessness can affect anyone of any age and can be temporary or long term. We want to make sure that any experience of homelessness on the Gold Coast is:

  • rare
  • brief; and
  • non-recurring.

Gold Coast Homelessness Action Plan 2024

The Gold Coast Homelessness Action Plan 2024 outlines the City’s roles, responsibilities, and strategic responses to homelessness. We work closely with the Queensland Government and local services to reduce homelessness in the city.
