What is Making Ends Meet?
Making Ends Meet provides financial assistance, support and education to working families who are living in private rental accommodation and experiencing significant housing stress. This includes the payment of grants to help pay bills, negotiate repayment plans and give you the skills to manage your budget.
We will continue to support you until your financial situation and housing has stabilised, and you have the tools to manage without further assistance. The program is designed to give families in crisis a foundation upon which to build a financially stable future.
Making Ends Meet can refer people to other useful community services.
