I'm a student of data science that can't code. I wanted to join some data sets together to inform the public about NSW local government areas (LGAs).

Team Name: 
Safety Net

Safety Net is a website designed to ease communication between homeless or at risk people and the services designed to help them. 

By geocoding data for charitable support services, we can provide an easy to use information source that will allow the newly homeless or at risk to  find the appropriate services easily, thus minimising the danger that they will become trapped with the disadvantages of street life. With a few minutes and an Internet connection, they will be able to find the people that can assist in getting them back on their feet.
