Sydney Homeless Connect is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit organisation that connects people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness with the services and support they need to improve their situation and get them into accommodation. The work that we do continues throughout the year, but culminates in an annual one-day event at Sydney Town Hall each July where Sydney’s most disadvantaged citizens - our guests - can come and be connected with community and government services that can give them the support, guidance and information they need.

In addition to being introduced to housing, health, employment, social, financial and legal services, they are also be treated to a hot hearty lunch, given medical and dental attention, offered new clothes, a haircut, a massage, and more – all for free. On the day itself, we connect around 3000 guests and volunteers with one another in an atmosphere of joy and mutual respect.
