Homelessness NSW is a peak not for profit organisation that works with its members to prevent and reduce homelessness across NSW. Our members include small, locally based community organisations, multiservice agencies with a regional reach and large State-wide service providers.
Key services that we provide include policy development and advocacy in working to end homelessness, public education about the changing faces of homeless people and those at risk, information about the diverse mix of initiatives operating in NSW and elsewhere and advice and support for member organisations and others about organisational change and improvement.
Use the directory to find services across NSW that can help you locate rental properties, help you maintain tenancies and provide financial assistance and support for living costs that affect your ability to meet rent.
The new 24/7 State-wide telephone line for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness to seek accommodation and support has been opened by the NSW Department of Family and Community Services.
The Department of Family and Community Services has called for submissions on their discussion paper: Social Housing in NSW
