Sector Hub

Sector Hub

The Sector Hub seeks to build skills and capability of homelessness services and allied services to provide high quality support to people at risk of or experiencing homelessness in NSW. Homelessness NSW achieves this through delivery of the Homelessness Industry and Workforce Development Strategy.

 

Designing and delivering through industry expertise and promotion.

Recognising the diversity and specialism in the homelessness sector, Homelessness NSW seeks input and guidance from industry experts to inform delivery of the Homelessness Industry and Workforce Development Strategy. Homelessness NSW has formed an Industry Partnership Steering Committee made up of representatives from Domestic Violence NSW, Y Foundations and other experts, guide and deliver initiatives for sector development, training, workforce wellbeing, and capacity building.
