The Housing Trust is preparing to transition rough sleepers into secure housing after being awarded 22 places in the NSW government’s $36 million Together Home project.

Announced Monday by Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services Gareth Ward, Housing Trust is one of 19 providers across the state to deliver the program and is now seeking suitable one and two-bedroom properties in the Illawarra’s private rental market.

The homes will provide stable accommodation, linked to wraparound supports such as culturally appropriate health and wellbeing services to people sleeping rough during the COVID-19 pandemic. Housing Trust CEO Michele Adair welcomed the government’s initiative.
