Housing is more than bricks and mortar. It provides individuals with a foundation of safety and security, empowering them to fully engage and contribute to our society. Access to stable housing fosters a sense of belonging and stability, enabling individuals to pursue education, employment and social connections more effectively.  

Jobs Queensland has partnered with the Department of Housing, Local Government, Planning and Public Works (DHLGPPW) to understand the current labour market challenges, the scale of skills shortages in the housing and homelessness services industry, and opportunities to address future workforce needs. 

This project focuses on non-government organisations providing frontline services for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness.  

This project will:  

  • provide an understanding of the current labour market challenges experienced within the industry. 
  • identify the scale of labour and skill shortages within the industry. 
  • identify opportunities to address current and future workforce needs. 

This industry environmental scan provides a historical and point-in-time reference to support DHLGPPW and/or the independent review of homelessness responses in Queensland.  Learn more:
