The state government has announced a $10,000,000 package to house a large group of rough sleepers at Flinders Street Station.

Soup kitchens, shower buses and other pop-up charities for Melbourne’s homeless could be cut back as a way of encouraging people into long-term accommodation.

Tom Elliott has questioned the cost, ‘How is it that it costs $10,000,000 to get just 40 people a roof over their heads?’

Tom says, ‘You can get in a three to four star hotel for $300 a night,’ that amount of money could house all 40 of them for 2.3 years.
