Homelessness Week – It’s time to end homelessness 

Shelter NSW staff were delighted to attend a number of events this week where we got to learn about new research; hear from people with lived experience of homelessness; and to hear from Government Departmental and Political Leaders as to what they are planning to do to prevent homelessness in the future.
We were especially happy to co-sponsor an Australasian Housing Institute event at the NSW Parliament (pictured). We were delighted to be joined by members, tenants and community sector colleagues.

Our CEO John Engeler reminded the audience that beyond Homelessness NSW’s catchcry, that homelessness ought to be rare, brief and non-recurring it was also solvable. There has been a lot of media attention on homelessness this week and many insightful resources shared but we commend this video to you: https://youtu.be/xAaceeO_ZGw
