Homelessness Nsw has today released a press release in support of our campaign to have the National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness extended.
The loss of the NPAH funding in NSW would create service gaps for women and children escaping domestic and family violence and quality support for young people in 24/7 crisis accommodation

Homelessness NSW welcomes the opportunity to comment on the New South Wales Department of Family and Community Services (FACS NSW) discussion paper, Foundations for change- Homelessness in NSW. Homelessness can be prevented and addressed in New South Wales but it requires resources and commitment from across the service system. Outlined in this submission is a detailed analysis of current issues relating to NSW policy and practice regarding homelessness and 38 recommendations that, if implemented, will make a real difference to preventing and addressing homelessness in New South Wales.
