Homelessness

Everyone has a role to play in ending homelessness and we all can contribute, to helping achieve permanent, affordable housing and the support that people need to create and keep a home.

In the 2016 census, it was revealed that homelessness rates in the Hunter had risen by 12% since the previous Census. 

Singleton Council pledges to do our part to end homelessness. We will build on our current actions to address homelessness, and support and promote the efforts of our community to end homelessness. We will advocate for change and enlist the support of our colleagues, businesses, local agencies and the community to join this important effort, and let local leaders know that Council supports The Newcastle and Hunter Ending Homelessness Pledge. Council also offers facilities at Singleton Youth Venue that specifically target homeless young people.
