Inspiring independence - our Homeless Persons Program

On any given night, 1 in 200 Australians are homeless.

Bolton Clarke's Melbourne-based Homeless Person Program works with people who are or at risk of homelessness who are experiencing physical, mental and psychological health issues.

Our team provides a primary healthcare response to people who are homeless or living in crisis accommodation via referral from other services, or through our nurses who are co-located in shelters, crisis centres and supported residential services.

We offer professional nursing care and support and can help locate the organisations that can assist with housing and meals, or legal and financial aid.

She changed my life

In many ways our Homeless Persons Program takes us back to our roots where some of our earliest nurses looked after so many living in poverty on our city streets. "When I woke up from my third coma, I knew I had to make some changes in my life'" says Karl, who with the HPP's Linda Cropley has been able to turn his life around. Linda says "Karl is motivated to make good decisions and is driving his own recovery. Having independent housing allows him to control things like diet, exercise and his wellbeing."
