Homelessness Health

The South Eastern Sydney Local Health District (SESLHD) has some of the highest rates of homelessness in NSW. People experiencing or at risk of homelessness may have a number of ongoing, chronic and complex health conditions that are often undertreated.

In response to this, the Homelessness Health Program coordinates initiatives that aim to improve health outcomes for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness across SESLHD.

How we work

The program works through: 

  • Delivery of workforce capacity building and training
  • Development of district-wide strategies that support the delivery of accessible and equitable health services
  • Collaboration with other SESLHD Health Services
  • Collection of data to better understand health needs of people experiencing or at risk of homelessness
  • Development of partnerships with other government and non-government agencies that enable the coordinated delivery of health services district-wide
