V360 Australia Ltd. is a registered charity which has been established with the aim of conducting assertive outreach, raising awareness and providing ongoing support for homeless veterans throughout Australia.
On any one night it is estimated that around 3,000 Australian Defence Force Veterans are sleeping in conditions that are classified by the Australian Bureau of Statistics as homeless.
V360 Australia Ltd. are an assertive outreach organisation. This means we actively go looking for veterans all around Australia who are sleeping rough or otherwise experiencing homelessness. Our aim is to reach out to and connect with these veterans in person and as soon as possible after identifying their need.
You can assist too. Please click on the Get Involved image to be transported to our supporters and volunteers information page.
What is Homelessness?
Homelessness is not simply being roofless it can be one or any combination of the aspects appearing below:
Primary homelessness is experienced by people without conventional accommodation (e.g. sleeping rough, in cars or in improvised dwellings/squats)
Secondary homelessness is experienced by people who frequently move from one temporary shelter to another (e.g. crisis/emergency accommodation, refuges, staying with parents and friends “couch surfing”)
Tertiary homelessness is experienced by people staying in accommodation that falls below minimum community standards (e.g. rooming/boarding houses and caravan parks etc. essentially places without tenure)
