Making Ends Meet

Making Ends Meet (MEM) is here to help you and your family keep your private rental lease when you're at risk of eviction. We are here to support and educate you on the best ways to do this and minimise the impact.

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 is for people who are:

  • renting privately (not through Homeswest)
  • have a family
  • are currently working
  • in stable accommodation for 6 months or more
  • paying an increasing amount for rent
  • living in the city of Mandurah or Rockingham or Cockburn, or the town of Kwinana
  • working with an Anglicare WA Financial Counsellor

How can Making Ends Meet be accessed?

People who are interested in accessing Making Ends Meet can phone the service on (08) 9581 0509 and organise an appointment with a support worker. At the appointment an assessment of your financial situation will be made and if you are found suitable an action plan will be arranged.



Making Ends Meet is funded by a single private donor.
