What is the Housing and Accommodation Support Initiative?

Support for adults with severe mental health issues living in NSW to recover in the community in the way that they want to. We work with people to bring about positive change and support them to build an independent and fulfilling life within their community.

How does the Housing and Accommodation Support Initiative help?

The type of support a person receives depends on their individual needs and own unique goals for what they want to achieve.

We help people identify goals and work towards meeting those goals by providing support that may include:

  • daily living skills such as self-care, shopping, looking after finances, cooking or catching public transport
  • referral to mental and physical health services where needed and support with mental and physical health appointments, medication management and other treatments
  • participating in social, leisure or sporting activities
  • building relationships with family, friends and the local communities
  • accessing education or help to get a job
  • help with finding and keeping housing including private or social/community housing
  • returning to the community from a hospital or a prison
  • accessing other supports like alcohol and other drugs services and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
