Everyone should have a home.
Every night, over 116,000 Australians experience homelessness across our country. Short-term or ongoing homelessness can be caused by a number of factors ranging from family violence to unemployment to a shortage of affordable housing.
At a council level, the City of Ryde is proud to support the team at Link Housing and is answering the challenge of providing affordable housing for citizens on very low to moderate incomes with its Affordable Housing Policy that will help to deliver 600 new affordable dwellings by 2031.
The City of Ryde has also participated in the homelessness street count since 2020. Organised by Department of Communities and Justice and Link Housing, the count provides Council with real-time data about the number of people who may be sleeping rough in the City of Ryde.
