Support for Homeless People in Public Places
These challenging times mean that people experiencing homelessness are at much greater risk of illness, further isolation, and are less likely to access essential services. A dedicated team of trained and experienced specialist homelessness workers from the NSW Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) has increased their weekly visits to known locations in the Liverpool area to engage with, and offer appropriate support and temporary accommodation to rough sleepers.
By following these simple steps, you will make a significant contribution to assisting people experiencing homelessness in the community:
- Report sightings of rough sleepers to Council at 1300 36 2170. It is vital that accurate information from the public is received as soon as possible to ensure a rapid referral and response from the specialist homelessness services team.
- Please do not approach rough sleepers. The specialist homelessness services team is best placed to engage with rough sleepers.
- Contact emergency health services if the rough sleeper appears in need of medical assistance.
If you, or anyone you know is homeless or at risk of being homeless please call Link2home on 1800 152 152, available 24 hours 7 days a week.
