Homelessness NSW strongly endorses the NSW government’s plan to expand the Shared Equity Home Buyer Helper program.
The government will set up a taskforce to improve housing access for women that have experienced domestic and family violence, including by expanding eligibility for the scheme.
Homelessness NSW CEO Trina Jones said: “Family and domestic violence is the leading cause of homelessness for women and children.
“Supporting victim-survivors to have a safe home will be a significant step towards reducing homelessness.
“For those who can afford to access it, this scheme will help people live in a safe home and contribute to safer and stronger communities.
“We endorse the government’s commitment to tackling homelessness and look forward to the taskforce’s recommendations.”
