SydWest Multicultural Services’ Homelessness Project is designed to help people from non-English speaking backgrounds who are experiencing difficulties accessing private, government or community housing in the Blacktown LGA. We aim to reduce homelessness by empowering people so that they are able to maintain their tenancies and we provide assistance and advice for people experiencing difficulties. The program also addresses issues of mortgage stress.
In addition to our Housing Support program, we offer a special Rent Choice Youth Program for youth aged 16-24 years.
SydWest assists clients to maintain and sustain tenancies by running regular information sessions to better understand their rights and responsibilities as tenants well as the different housing services available,
SydWest also works with local real estate agents so they can better understand the challenges and barriers that refugee migrants face when seeking stable housing.
The Homelessness project links eligible clients with housing support networks and assist clients to find suitable, stable, secure accommodation and advocate on clients’ behalf
Our Homelessness Project Worker is available for one-on-one appointments to assist eligible clients with forms, applications, bond and other issues relating to sustainable housing.
