Shoalhaven City Council aims to ensure that all public space can be shared by all people including those who may be homeless. To ensure that people who are homeless are treated with dignity and respect without discrimination, Council has endorsed the NSW Protocol for Homeless People in Public Places. This protocol guides Council in responding to the needs of homeless people.
