Daily Rough Sleepers Count

We take this opportunity to thank the private, workgroup and accommodation industry donors who have so far provided the rooms units or resources to fund our new Offstreets program. Offstreets provides an option for homeless parents with children to receive a leg-up in the form of unconditionally provided hotel/motel accommodation, for up to one week. While it is not a long term solution,it certainly provides some unconditional respite. Parents or family names are NOT recorded by our service, to ensure that the service is unconditional. We commenced this essential service in response to the large number of young children being seen on the streets in the company of desperate parents-and their circumstances are heartbreaking. The last thing these people need is to find out years later that their often temporary accommodation crisis has resulted in a mandatory report to DOCs who are then able to apply their imagination to concoct fanciful allegations at some future date against the hapless family.
We also seek further donations of rooms, units and funds to cover such on an urgent basis.These are NOT tax deductible as we are NOT a registered charity,at federal or state level. Your donation is 100% direct to the recipient, we just facilitate.
All families and the public need to be aware that ALL educators, child care centres, doctors, hospitals, police emergency housing providers and social workers, youth services organisations such as YOTS and Oasis are mandatory reporters
AND THEY DO NOT HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT THEY COLLECT THIS INFORMATION ON BEHALF OF DOCS, often at the lowest point in your life-so far.
Armed with these mandatory reports DOCs can and do issue proceedings in the Childrens Court, which we consider Australias Guantanamo Bay. Allegations are sufficient to manufacture a case and DOCs delight in this style of presentation. Often cash strapped families are forced to use legal aid lawyers with only very basic access to resources, pitted against the combined resources of DOCs the DPP and Police, in a court where innuendo replaces evidence from your accusers.
The Sydney Daily rough sleepers count has been cobbled together and refers to the number of people sleeping rough , in the 24 hour period ending 2 a.m. Our count includes people who sleep by day in the many areas & places known to us as well as people and families sleeping in Cars and other non residential housing, squats as well as the more obvious locations.
