In 2022, Homelessness NSW embarked on a journey to delve into the wellbeing of our dedicated workers in the Specialist Homelessness Service (SHS) sector.
Partnering with The Wellbeing Lab and consultant Samantha McGolrick, we conducted the “Specialist Homelessness Service Sector Worker Wellbeing Survey” from July to August 2022.
This survey engaged 112 passionate workers from 12 Specialist Homelessness Services, resulting in valuable insights on sector wellbeing. We are thrilled to share the report, “Enhancing Wellbeing in the Specialist Homelessness Service Sector: Insights from Homelessness NSW’s 2022 Specialist Homelessness Service Sector Worker Wellbeing Survey”.
Homelessness NSW remains committed to leveraging these findings for positive change. We will continue to adopt an evidence-based approach to our learning and development strategy, building upon the report’s findings to enhance wellbeing, foster a supportive culture, and equip SHS employees with the skills and resources needed for growth—both professionally and personally.
For further details and additional resources related to wellbeing definitions and measurement, please visit this The Wellbeing lab website.
We encourage you to explore the full report and share these valuable insights within your organisation. Together, we can make a positive impact and ensure the wellbeing of those who work tirelessly to address homelessness.
