This document is a blueprint for action for regional Indigenous homelessness projects in Mt Isa, Cairns, and Townsville / Thuringowa. The blueprint details strategies to be implemented in cooperation with all stakeholders in each of the communities. Five strategic areas underpin the direction of the blueprint and will guide future efforts in the three regions. They are: coordinating services for greater effectiveness; securing safer communities; supporting healthier individuals; balancing Indigenous rights and responsibilities; improving accommodation options and arrangements. The document includes an overview of the extent of the problem of homelessness in the regions; contemporary approaches to service delivery; a framework for action; immediate government actions; the consolidated blueprint; an attachment on current thinking in delivering services to the homeless; and an attachment on approaches to addressing anti-social and related behaviour. Separate reports for each area are available - see .
