Working with our members to advocate for a NSW where no one is at risk of or experiencing homelessness

We advocate and provide leadership on homelessness issues across NSW and support effective service delivery to those who are experiencing homelessness, have experienced homelessness or are at risk of homelessness.

Homelessness NSW acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the various lands on which we meet and work on. We pay our respects to First Nations peoples and elders past, present and future. Always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.
