Homelessness

8 November 2016

We approach our response to the discussion paper from the perspective of housing justice, and from the knowledge that homelessness is the ultimate result of a housing system that does not meet the needs of all citizens – particularly low-income and disadvantaged households. 

We recognise that there are many risk factors and pathways into homelessness, and many potential barriers to overcoming it.  For this reason, we also endorse the detailed recommendations contained in the Homelessness NSW response to the discussion paper.
