It’s getting close to the inaugural Wollongong Homeless Street Count, which will take place on 18/19 February (between the hours of 12am and 3am).
Registrations are still open until tonight if you would like to participate in the count, click on the below link – please share : )
The street count will assist Illawarra homeless support services to develop responses to homelessness according to need. Results can be used to advocate to state and federal governments, along with potential partners, for the resources necessary to achieve enduring solutions to homelessness.
Counting the numbers of people experiencing primary homelessness is only one method of collecting data but it is an important one.
The Wollongong Homeless Street Count is a collaborative initiative of IRT Foundation, Wollongong Homeless Hub and Wollongong City Council.
