Homelessness NSW is not a housing provider or a direct support service. If you are seeking emergency accommodation, visit Link2Home.
There were approx. 37,000 people experiencing homelessness in NSW on the night of the 2016 Census. This was an increase of 37% and far higher than the national increase of 14%.
In response to these statistics, Homelessness NSW prepared these resources to assist with understanding homelessness in Australia. Perfect for journalists, researchers or those wanting to know more in-depth details, these infographics include analysis of cohorts from rough sleeping to older people to a local government analysis.
We’ve collated a number of helpful resources throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to help the homelessness sector navigate updates from the NSW Government and how best to support clients through these challenging times.
