What is Homelessness Week? In Australia there are over 116,000 people experiencing homelessness on any given night. Homelessness Week aims to raise awareness of the impact of homelessness on Australia via national and local community events, including providing information on the importance of housing as a solution and educating communities on how they can make a difference.
The 2020 Federal Budget did not include funding for the Commonwealth component of the Equal Remuneration Order beyond June 2021. This equates to a cut to homelessness services of $56.7 million nationally and $7.5 million in NSW. Homelessness NSW supports the Campaign being led by Homelessness Australia to reinstate this funding within the NHHA.
