At this election, we want the next government to commit to ending homelessness together. We all know that everyone needs a safe place to call home. It’s the foundation for health, safety, education, family stability, steady work and strong communities. Homelessness NSW has developed a plan to build for the future and support people into homes - find out how to support us and take action here.
With the election now over, we wanted to share a wrap up of our election campaign “Ending Homelessness Together”, which aimed to raise awareness and advocate for policy solutions to end homelessness in NSW. Read more here.
Homelessness NSW supports ‘Unhoused’, an essential campaign that calls on both the coalition and the opposition to commit, within the next term of government, to invest $7.6 billion to provide 16,810 new permanent homes for women.
We want to everything we can at this important juncture to tip the scales. MP’s need to hear from you, about housing and homelessness in their own backyard. Help us to act now and make change in the upcoming 2022-23 NSW Budget.
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.
Join this campaign for a better, fairer housing system for everyone. Every Australian needs a place to call home.
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.
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.
