Homelessness NSW was pleased to launch this joint report with PIAC that focuses on the lived experience of people sleeping rough and the impact that police interaction can have on wellbeing and ensuring access to housing and support services. The Report contains nine recommendations that focus on the rights of people experiencing and homelessness in public places and the need for resources to provide support and access to services. The report also supports the implementation the recommendations from the Parliamentary Inquiry into the Protocol for Homeless People in Public Places. The NSW Government released its response to the findings of the Inquiry.
We look forward to working with the NSW Government to progress both the recommendation of the report and the recommendations from the Parliamentary Inquiry.
