Campaigns

Homelessness NSW plays a vital role in influencing policy and systems to support people experiencing homelessness. We do this by collaborating with government, services and other peak bodies on campaigns and lobbying initiatives. Browse through our most recent campaigns and advocacy below.

New election campaign calls for urgent government action to address women’s homelessness

Homelessness NSW is pleased to support Unhoused - Campaigning for safe homes for Australia’s women – calling for 16,810 homes for women. Women’s homelessness is a national crisis. The women’s safety and homelessness sector has determined that $7.6 billion is required from the Government over the next 4 years to provide long-term housing for Australia’s women. This investment would allow for the provision of 16,810 homes which provide immediate economic benefits of $15.3 billion and create 47,000 jobs across the economy**.
