The Together Home Program is a $177.5 million investment by the NSW Government. It aims to support over 1,072 people street-sleeping across NSW into stable accommodation, linked to wraparound support.

The program is a key initiative to support the Premier’s Priority to halve street homelessness by 2025.

Together Home aims to transition people onto a trajectory away from homelessness and into long-term stable housing, while improving overall personal wellbeing. It is underpinned by Housing First principles and is being delivered across NSW by 18 Community Housing Providers that sub-contract the support component to Specialist Homelessness Services or other partners. Support providers work to coordinate and strengthen relationships between the various services involved in a person’s support plan, including disability supports.

High Needs packages

Homelessness NSW is funded separately to manage and deliver Together Home High Needs packages. If a participant has a high degree of complexity, Community Housing Providers can make a referral to the High Needs Assessment Panel for a High Needs package. To-date a total of 105 High Needs packages have been funded.

Aboriginal-led model

On the Central Coast, DCJ has partnered with the local community to design and deliver an Aboriginal-led Together Home model. The Aboriginal-led model commenced delivery in 2021 with 17 packages initially. It has since expanded to deliver an additional 18 leasing and wraparound support packages over two years (totalling 35 packages) in the Hunter Central Coast, following a further investment of $1.4 million through the NSW Homelessness Strategy PDF, 502.01 KB.

Transition Program

The Together Home Transition Program will deliver 250 new social homes, helping prevent rough sleepers from having to return to the streets. This includes 130 homes funded previously, and 120 homes funded by the 2022 Housing Package.

This program will be delivered by community housing providers, with co-contributions and in partnership with DCJ through the Community Housing Innovation Fund approach.
