Homelessness NSW endorses expansion of shared housing scheme

Homelessness NSW < 1 mins read

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.”
