We have been monitoring the COVID-19 virus situation and its impact on this year’s event. We want to ensure we don’t expose our already vulnerable guests, volunteers or service providers to any additional risk.
As you no doubt expect, while we really want to see the event go ahead, we will need to postpone the event and work towards a new date later in the year. We will keep everyone updated on our progress.
Good luck out there and please stay safe.
Thank you for your kindness,
Andrew, Peter and the whole SHC Team

SHC Homeless Care Packs for a Christmas in July
On 3 July 2018 the annual winter event, Sydney Homeless Connect, will bring together thousands of people who are experiencing homeless or at risk of homelessness with services and support that they need, whether it be a hot meal, a haircut, a medical check or access to an agency that can help them take a step forward.
Sydneysiders, we need you to shine during the cold, rainy winter! Please donate an SHC Homeless Care Package filled with the bare essentials to help those who need it most. Last year, we saw Sydneysiders everywhere get on-board to support this cause from individuals, groups of friends, workplaces, churches, meet-up groups, schools, etc. It was spectacular display of “do some good for the sake of doing good”! Think you’re up for it again?! Read more

Last year we asked Sydneysiders to donate a Homeless Care Package filled with the bare essentials to help those who could really use the help this cold winter. Sydneysiders everywhere got on-board to support this cause from individuals, small groups of friends, workplaces, churches, meet-up groups, schools, etc. It was remarkable! Read more
From St Ives to Kogarah, thousands of Sydneysiders have opened their hearts and pockets to bring a smile, support and kindness to the hidden faces of homelessness. Read more
The Nature of Giving
Sometimes it is good just to do something good.
“So then, why do you do it?” It is a question I get asked a lot. Sydney Homeless Connect is a completely not-for-profit activity. Nobody gets paid. We are not trying to build a business. We are not even trying to grow the organisation. It is all about a diverse group of individuals coming together to try to do what they can to help people who are currently experiencing some hardship – just because it seems like a good thing to do. And some people just can’t understand it.
