Council has pledged to do its part to end homelessness.

We will build on our current actions to address homelessness, and support and promote the efforts of our community to end homelessness. We will advocate for change and enlist the support of our colleagues, businesses, local agencies and the community to join this important effort, and let local leaders know that we support The Newcastle and Hunter Ending Homelessness Pledge.

Homelessness services and support

There is a range of local services for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness. Hunter Homeless Connect Inc. is a volunteer not-for-profit organisation that coordinates the annual Hunter Homeless Connect Day event and the Connecting the Hunter Program.

They also collate an annual directory of support services available across the Hunter.
