Specialist Homelessness Services are a vital part of a broader system in NSW that supports people who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness. The program funds non-government organisations (NGOs) to deliver prevention and early intervention services, rapid rehousing, crisis and transitional responses and intensive responses for complex needs.
This FACSAR Evidence to Action Note outlines key findings from the Early Review of the Specialist Homelessness Services Program reform. The Early Review looks at what is and isn’t working well and identifies key areas where FACS and the homelessness sector can work together to improve outcomes for clients.
