Interesting in becoming an Interagency Member?
The Interagency works collaboratively via its Members to end homelessness in the Parramatta region.
The Interagency focuses on the needs of people experiencing homelessness and who are connected to the Parramatta and surrounding local government areas, and those who work to support them. Stakeholders include the homeless, large and small not-or-profit direct and indirect services providers, specialist and mainstream service providers, Government agencies, and peak bodies.

Seeking to help people experiencing homelessness?
We know there are many generous and concerned members of our local community who want to help in some way. This may be through a donation of goods, volunteering your time or services, or a financial donation. While the Interagency is not a standalone incorporated organisation and cannot accept donations, many of our members are always looking for assistance. Below you will find links to services that you can contact directly to discuss how you can get involved in addressing homelessness and supporting those experiencing homelessness.
Support services are always trying to do a lot with very little, and decreasing funding. If you would like to donate money, please see the list of our members with links to their websites to find out more about them and how to donate. Members accepting donations are marked ($) to help you.
Donating Household Items:
Many services assist people in setting-up a home, often for the first time in many years. As you know, it takes more than a roof over your head to create a home, and there are many things you need when setting-up a home – white goods, furniture, cutlery, linen etc. If you wish to donate household items, please see the list of our members with links to their websites to find out more about them and their contact details. Members assisting people to set-up a home are marked (house symbol) to help you.
Donating Time (volunteering):
Volunteering your time is a rewarding activity, and many services do need volunteers to operate their services for people experiencing homelessness. If you would like to volunteer, please see the list of our members with links to their website to find out more about them and their contact details. Members that take volunteers are marked (person symbol) to help you.

The City of Parramatta Council is not involved in direct service delivery of food services, but provides permits for delivery of services on Council land.
