Event description

Description

For Community Workers in the Southern region who do NOT predominantly work in a housing role.

Homelessness causes devastating personal harm, significantly impacts on the community and affects all aspects of an individuals life and wellbeing. Homelessness is an issue that is not going away on its own and as a society we can’t afford to ignore it.

This Seminar is for community workers and others who don’t work in a housing role but who may assist clients with housing issues as part of their role. Workers will be better informed on how they can best support a client down the different paths to stable accommodation including support to access private rental or maintaining an existing at risk tenancy.

At the end of the seminar you will:

  • Have a greater understanding of products and financial assistance available for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness
  • Have an understanding of specialist homelessness services and their role
  • Be better able to assist clients experiencing or at risk of homelessness
  • Understand how tenancy services can assist in saving at risk tenancies

Presenters include:

  • FACS, Housing Services - Private Rental Products to assist people into private tenancies
  • Illawarra and South Coast Tenant Advocacy & Advice Service (TAAS) - How the TAAS can assist people at risk of losing a tenancy
  • IRT assistance with Care & Housing Program - linking seniors to suitable community services to find sustainable and affordable housing opportunities
  • FACS Online Services - Housing Pathways and online application process

Morning tea and a light lunch will be provided. Please advise us at time of booking of any specific dietary requirements.
