After successfully running the program in Ulladulla earlier this year, Illawarra Shoalhaven Partners in Recovery (ISPIR) are offering the free ‘Keys 2 Renting’ workshop in Nowra.
The program will run every Friday for 3 weeks in June in partnership with Southern Cross Community Housing, to help people with a mental illness find and keep a place to rent.
Grand Pacific Health peer mentors will be available to support participants throughout the program.
ISPIR Team Leader Jenny Valdivia says the workshop will offer participants lots of practical tools:
“It will cover things like getting along with neighbours, understanding a tenants rights and responsibilities and much more,” said Jenny.
“We had positive feedback from participants in Ulladulla and have already had lots of people sign up for this Fridays first session in Nowra, which is very encouraging,” added Jenny.
The workshop will be held at the Cullunghutti Centre in Holloway Drive, Nowra on Friday June 2nd, 9th and 16th from 9:30am until 2:30pm and includes lunch.
