Lived Experience Project

Homelessness NSW is committed to ensuring the active participation of people who are or who have experienced homelessness in our policy and project work. 

Homelessness NSW ensures the participation of those experiencing homelessness in our work in the following ways: 

  • Consumer representation on our Policy Council which determines policy and advocacy priorities; 
  • Consultations and other engagements with consumers in our policy and advocacy projects; and
  • Providing resources and information for those experiencing homelessness. 

This has been developed to support people with lived experience of homelessness and staff in conducting consumer advocacy. It has been developed in consultation with people with lived experience of homelessness and homelessness staff from the SHS Sector in NSW.
