The Haymarket Foundation has been using digital technology to help people experiencing homelessness access services during the pandemic.

A particular need is help with drug and alcohol issues.

The online service allows for increased accessibility for those with mobility issues and for those who do not have the resources or flexibility to travel.

Thanks to a grant from the City of Sydney, a mobile facility has been established, along with two digital consulting rooms in the Haymarket’s Chippendale and Woolloomooloo offices.

Through these hubs, the Haymarket has been able to ensure people can access counselling privately and that they can maintain social connection through work with professionals.
