New England Regional Sustainable Housing and Homelessness (NERSHH), Moree Family Support and Byamee hosted a speed networking on Friday, to help the wide range of services in Moree better know each other.

27 people from 20 different services in Moree came together at Moree Family Support, where they could have short one on one conversations and learn more about each other and their services.

Some of the services represented included Moree Care, Miyay Birray Youth Service, Northcott, HNE Health, Flourish and more.

"We're aware of all the services available, but not so much the nuances in each one," housing and homelessness coordinator Tracey Jack said.

"It's only something you get talking one on one."

Ms Jack said it was a great event and was pleased to see everyone collaborating.

"When you get the collaboration between services, you get the best results for your clients," she said.

"It's really great to see people are keen to come together and share what they've got to offer.

"You get the best outcome when people are working together and in a friendly environment."

After a successful start in Moree, there are plans to hold another event in the next financial year.

Next Friday, February 28, the Living Program will be held at the MAX Centre, which designed to strengthen partnerships between real estate agents and homelessness services and sustain tenancies.
