About us

Homelessness Australia was defunded by the Federal Government in December 2014.  It now operates on a voluntary basis and has no employed staff.

Homelessness Australia (HA) is the national peak body for homelessness in Australia. We provide systemic advocacy for the homelessness sector.

HA does not provide or manage accommodation or deliver direct client services.  Instead we work with a large network of organisations to provide a unified voice when it comes to preventing and responding to homelessness.  If you are experiencing homelessness or need help please CLICK HERE.
