Homelessness Support Service

The Homelessness Support Service is about promoting self-reliance, independence and long term stable accommodation. 

Please note that this program does not provide crisis or immediate accommodation. If you require urgent housing, please call Crisis Care on 1800 199 008 or Entry Point on 1800 124 684 for assistance.

What is the Homelessness Support Service?

The service is a Federal and State Government initiative designed to work with families and individuals who are experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness.

If you are currently in a refuge or transitional accommodation in the South West Metropolitan area you can be referred to our Homelessness support service by your caseworker to help you access long term, stable housing. As part of the agreement you will need to have sufficient skills and be ready to accept responsibility for a tenancy and be willing to engage with a support worker.

The Service can help by:   

  • Working with you to develop a support plan around your housing needs
  • Link you to support service providers including health, education and counselling
  • Tenancy information and support
  • Advocacy and referrals to housing providers including private rentals, community housing, Department of Communities (Housing)
  • Support around establishing a tenancy including sourcing essential home and housekeeping items
  • Support to develop budgeting skills

How can the Homelessness Support Service be accessed?

A referral from your current caseworker must be emailed to housing@anglicarewa.org.au.
