Homelessness NSW is not a housing provider or a direct support service. If you are seeking emergency accommodation, visit Link2Home.
Homelessness NSW is the peak body for the homelessness sector in NSW. We exist to build the capability of people and the capacity of systems to end homelessness in NSW.
Through the Industry Partnership, we work in partnership with Peak bodies, Industry experts and the sector to deliver a range of training, resources, and support to New South Wales Specialist Homelessness Services.
