Many Australians are at risk of experiencing homelessness or sleeping rough and the Byron Shire is no exception. Housing in the Shire is amongst the least affordable in Australia. Limited emergency and temporary accommodation, coupled with very few social housing options are a problem in the Shire.
Council acknowledges that access to safe and secure housing is one of the most basic human rights and works in collaboration with local services and the community to address homelessness and its impacts across the Shire. We are taking action through the Ending Rough Sleeping Byron Shire project which kicks of during Connections Week - 16 to 20 November, 2020.
If you have concerns about someone rough sleeping or would like further information please contact Council's Project Officer (Rough Sleeping) firstname.lastname@example.org
