A once-in-a-career opportunity

The NSW Government has announced a historic investment of $484.3 million, for housing and specialist supports for women and children experiencing domestic and family violence (DFV). This is the single biggest investment in addressing DFV in the State’s history and will provide $426.6 million over four years to expand the delivery and operation of new women’s refuges through an innovative Core and Cluster model.

Homelessness NSW, working in partnership with Domestic Violence NSW and Aboriginal Community Housing Association are working together to support organisations to participate in the Core and Cluster program. This will include accelerating effective partnerships, engagement, and resources to facilitate robust participation.
