Co-locations with other support services across our region
Supporting tenants to successfully sustain tenancies is a key focus for Homes North. To better achieve this aim we work closely with support services in each of our locations.
- Gunnedah office sharing with UnitingCare
Through co-location Homes North works closely with Uniting staff to ensure the tenancies of our elderly and vulnerable community members are sustained and our older residents are well supported in their transition to aged care facilities.
- Inverell office sharing with Staying Home Leaving Violence program managed by Tamworth Family Support Service (TFSS). TFSS provides homelessness and family related services across the New England North West.
“It has been our experience that having a service co-locate has enormous benefits to the clients, through the warm and smooth referrals and clients not having to retell their story. The added benefit to workers is a sharing of knowledge, skills and resources.” Belinda Kotris: General Manager TFSS.
- Moree office sharing with Byamee Proclaimed Place Moree Area Homelessness Service
This co-location supports seamless service provision for transition from homelessness through to stable housing.
- Tamworth: Homes North is also in negotiations with TFSS to co-locate the two services in Tamworth
