On Monday 8th August, the 2016 Western Sydney Homeless Connect (WSHC) was held at Parramatta Town Hall and Centenary Square, as part of Parramatta Homeless Persons Week with a record attendance of an estimated 2500 people. Now in its fourth year WSHC has continued to grow in size and in its value to the Western Sydney community. There was overwhelming support for WSHC2016, a reflection of the growing issue of homelessness and the number of people at risk of homelessness. Over 50 volunteers and 50 support providers came together to provide real support for people experiencing homelessness. WSHC gave out 2600 meals from Bunnings Warehouse North Parramatta and Outback Steakhouse Wentworthville, Rapid Relief Team (RRT) and Soul Origin Westfield Parramatta; 1000 care packs, 1500 cups of barista made coffee from RRT and Soul Origin; 242 health checks by Western Sydney University nursing and midwifery students; 30 dental checks; 110 haircuts from HairAid volunteers. We also know that 32 of our support providers made 1602 connections with our homeless or at risk homeless guests.
