Homelessness NSW is not a housing provider or a direct support service. If you are seeking emergency accommodation, visit Link2Home.
The Sydney Women’s Homelessness Alliance (SWHA) has been established to assist cross agency sector collaboration and improve a woman’s journey through the complexities of the homelessness system.
We provide a collaborative approach to assessing and addressing problematic structural issues within the delivery of services, to create a better opportunity for positive outcomes for homeless women of Sydney.
SWHA is open to agencies and organisations who are involved in service delivery to homeless women. You’ll just need to be an agency or organisation that delivers services to homeless women, be available to meet bi-monthly and be ready to share your views and provide action to better outcomes clients.
Learn more about SWHA and our Staff Exchange Project by viewing this video.
The SWHA Staff Exchange project aims to facilitate upskilling, learning and partnerships across sectors working in homelessness. Members swap positions with staff in other services for a week and learn about the day-to-day workings of other organisations and areas.
The Staff Exchange Project is currently on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we will aim to re-start this project as soon as it is safe and possible!
A symbolic event to acknowledge the victims of Domestic and Family Violence.
Sydney Women’s Homeless Alliance and its members invite you to join us on Wednesday 5th May 2021, 11am – 12pm at The Fountain Court, inside Parliament House, 6 Macquarie Street Sydney.
The community is invited to this event to quietly reflect, acknowledge and honour the women, children and men who have been killed due to DFV.
We will lay roses along the fence line – red for women, white for children and yellow for men. Roses will be available for purchase on the day or bring your own.
This is designed to facilitate community expression of our grief and a reminder that with appropriate interventions, education and specialist domestic and family violence support services future deaths may be prevented.
You can find more details in this flyer here.
