Hills MPs Dominic Perrottet and David Elliott today welcomed the Going Home Staying Home reform which will help fight homelessness in the Hills.
“Going Home Staying Home is a win for those most vulnerable in our local community both those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness,” Mr Perrottet said.
“For the first time, resources will be allocated based on evidence not history.”
“The evidence points to the greatest need for homelessness services being in our suburbs and regions.”
Mr Elliott said the Government wanted to catch people before they reach crisis point.
“Funding for Western Sydney will increase by three percent to $12.97 million in 2014/15.
“Under the reform, providers will focus more on prevention and early intervention, not just crisis management.
“The Going Home Staying Home reforms reflect the NSW Government’s commitment to supporting the most vulnerable in our community.”
