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.
Morning tea and lunch will be provided.
