Welcome to The People's Project

We are leading a community-wide response to help people get the services they need, with housing being the first priority.

Many organisationshave put up their hands to be part of the solution.

Together, we're working with homeless people to connect them with accommodation, income, employment, health and other services in their communities that will support them to live independently.

Together, we can end homelessness.
