This free service includes

  • Assistance in identifying and obtaining new accommodation
  • Help to identify and address current problems so that existing accommodation can be maintained
  • Connection with relevant support and community services to match individual needs
  • Support with advocacy, negotiation and applications.

This program is funded through the City of Onkaparinga
