About Homelessness NSW

Who We Are

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 who work to address and prevent homelessness.

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.

Our Vision

A NSW where no-one is homeless or at risk of homelessness.

Our Purpose

To advocate and provide leadership on homelessness issues across NSW and to support effective service delivery to those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

Our Values

We are guided by the principles of social justice and human rights.

We act with accountability, transparency and quality practice.

We encourage our members to participate in shaping our policies, conducting our advocacy and designing and delivering our services.

We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land and respect elders, past and present and recognise the impacts of colonisation and dispossession on homelessness.
