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.

The COVID-19 situation continues to unfold in Western NSW, across largely Aboriginal populations. Aboriginal people are identified as a clearly vulnerable community to COVID 19. Such vulnerability stems from chronic health conditions experience by Aboriginal people and under-resourced health services in regional and remote NSW.

Homelessness NSW and the Centre for Social Impact, UNSW, are proud to launch a new report “More than temporary? An evaluation of the accommodation of people rough sleeping in inner city Sydney during the COVID-19 pandemic”. The report was produced following interviews with key organisations involved in the 2020 accommodation response. As the increased accommodation of rough sleepers takes place again during Sydney’s current lockdown, it is more important than ever to reflect on the experience of this response and ensure that everyone is provided with housing at the end of the lockdown.

Homelessness NSW was pleased to be a partner in a new report by Equity Economics Nowhere to go: the benefits of providing long term social housing to women that have experienced domestic and family violence launched today. It costs the savings to women and the community of providing housing so women avoid homelessness, and returns to violent partners because of homelessness. It is intended to influence the public debate and the Government as we lead in to the Women’s Safety Summit scheduled for 29-30 July.
