Unaccompanied children (12 -15 year olds) experiencing homelessness

Friday, 2 November 2018

In June 2018, the NSW Ombudsman’s Office released the More than Shelter Report [link to https://www.ombo.nsw.gov.au/news-and-publications/publications/reports/community-and-disability-services/more-than-shelter-addressing-legal-and-policy-gaps-in-supporting-homeless-children] which identified some critical legal, policy and service gaps in the response to children experiencing homelessness.  Homelessness NSW has developed a Position Paper in response to this report which supports the recommendations and builds on these to request that measures are also undertaken to look at good practice approaches and resourcing of services for children experiencing homelessness.
