If you are currently homeless or at risk of homelessness, Sydney Homeless Connect can put you in touch with social and government organisations that can help you. These include crisis care, support and health services, employment assistance, housing assistance, financial assistance and legal services.

Sydney Homeless Connect cannot offer to be an agent ourselves (i.e. we cannot make applications on your behalf for housing, employment, etc.), but what we do is connect you with the people who can, or who can advise you on how to do it.
