Consultation report and strategic advice for improving the provision of specialist homelessness services for Aboriginal people in NSW

Summary Overview and Final Reports

In July 2019, The Department of Communities and Justice (then Department of Families and Community Services) commissioned Aboriginal social change agency Cox Inall Ridgeway (CIR) to lead a community engagement process and undertake related research which could progress DCJ’s commitments to Aboriginal people, in relation to increasing the delivery of specialist homelessness services to Aboriginal people by Aboriginal people, and increasing the cultural competence of non-Aboriginal service providers.

Community engagement was undertaken over July to September 2019 with Aboriginal state-wide organisations, Aboriginal homelessness service providers and their Aboriginal staff, DCJ staff, the Industry Partnership, and non-Aboriginal homelessness service providers

Recommendations from this project are detailed on pages 10 – 20 in the Summary Report, available to download HERE.

The Final report is available to download HERE.
