University staff assemble on the Big Ideas Homelessness Network

Solicitor Jacquie Svenson (University of Newcastle Legal Centre) has joined Dr Jennifer Waterhouse (Newcastle Business School) on the Big Ideas Homelessness Network, facilitated by Compass Housing Services.

Ms Svenson’s placement students will be involved in drafting questions in relation to the withdrawal of funding for the Reaching Home Outreach Service, which provided emergency mental health support for homeless persons.

The network is a community collaborative steering group with representatives from community and agencies who have a vested interested in ending homelessness in the Newcastle and Hunter regions. Further information about the network can be found here
