Homelessness NSW is not a housing provider or a direct support service. If you are seeking emergency accommodation, visit Link2Home.
The outbreak in NSW affects each and every one of us. We know pressure is growing in the community across the state, not just in Greater Sydney. The importance of having a safe, comfortable, uncrowded home has never been clearer.
But the situation may well get worse as people face joblessness, and as house prices rise exponentially while the supply of affordable housing does not.
If the pandemic has shown us anything, it has shown us that governments CAN be moved to support the most exposed and most at risk. We have seen the NSW commit to economic stimulus, to the Together Home program, and to putting rough sleepers in hotels.
There is some momentum.
Right now, we’re asking you to work with us, to continue to keep those vulnerable and most exposed in the hearts and minds of our Members or Parliament.

Homelessness NSW will be preparing and submitting a Pre-Budget Submission, and advocating to its tune. Without a doubt a major focus will continue to be more social housing. But we also know that the specialist homelessness sector needs a pretty significant boost to recurrent funding, especially our Aboriginal Controlled Community Organisations.
