The Constellation Project

The causes of homelessness are well known. So are many of the solutions. That’s why PwC Australia joined the Australian Red Cross, Centre for Social Impact, and Mission Australia to try a new approach, The Constellation Project.

The Constellation Project launched in October 2018 and is a unique cross-sector collaboration with a vision to end homelessness. The project is designed to deliver practical solutions that can be scaled. Most importantly, the work is centred around the voices of people with lived experience of homelessness, with a specific stream dedicated to Australia’s First Nations peoples.

 The Constellation Project
‘social lab’

Throughout 2018-19 The Constellation Project cultivated a network of people across states, sectors, and organisations who are committed to sharing insights, learning, leading and acting together.  Much of the work has happened in a ‘social lab, where participants have given up their personal time to work in teams focused on a specific challenge question.

The social lab is designed to accelerate work around practical outcomes. There is no shortage of research and statistics on the issue of homelessness in Australia but what we need is solutions.

Take a look at the Constellation Project Lab kick off

From March 2018 to July 2019, five lab teams got working on our first lab challenge question - ‘By 2022, how might we make 100,000 homes available to Australians who need them most?’  In this context, ‘homes’ are safe, affordable, appropriate, accessible, and secure, and ‘those who need them most’ are Australians on very low-to-moderate incomes.

We now have a portfolio of promising solutions with the potential to take us closer to our target of 100,000 homes. And we already have live opportunities to develop some of the lab ideas with government further.
