Transitional Housing

Transitional Housing is a supported short-term accommodation with access to support services. It acts as a stepping stone to more permanent housing in public, community or the private market.

People moving into transitional housing have often been victims of a change in circumstance. For example, a lost job has meant the rent can’t be paid, a marriage break-up leaves one partner with no money or support, or a person may lose the support of – or can no longer live with – other family members.

Individuals are provided with a housing support program that offers advice and planning in the areas where assistance is needed. A key element of transitional housing is that it's a temporary option, and tenants must be actively working with their support provider to apply for long-term housing (eg public housing or private rental).
