Homeless Health Service

The Homeless Health Service acknowledges the Gadigal People of the Eora nation, the traditional custodians of the land on which we walk and work.

 
Access to healthcare for people experiencing homelessness

The Homeless Health Service (HHS) is a service that aims to support people experiencing or at risk of homelessness to actively engage in healthcare and access health services of their choice. The HHS utilises a strengths-based, harm minimisation approach to addressing clients’ cultural, and holistic health needs and partners with local services to provide assessment, treatment, education, support and referral.

Our team includes Nurses, Doctors, Allied Health staff, Health Educators, Aboriginal Health Workers and Peer Support Workers.
