Link2home, the new statewide homelessness information and referral telephone service has now commenced.

The service provides information, conducts assessments, as well as makes referrals to homelessness services across NSW and is part of the Going Home Staying Home reforms announced last month.

It brings together several homelessness telephone services including Homeless Persons Information Centre, Y Connect and the After Hours Temporary Accommodation line and is being delivered by the Housing Contact Centre.

Link2home is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year on 1800 152 152.

The service is for people who are homeless or who are worried they will become homeless, as well as for advocates acting on a person's behalf.

Link2home will work in partnership with Specialist Homelessness Services across NSW to provide the best response for clients.
