Are you worried about losing your home? Struggling to find somewhere to live?
Supportive Tenancy Service (STS) works with people whose tenancy is at risk (Tenancy Support) or who are facing barriers in establishing a private tenancy (Housing Options).
STS is a partnership between Belconnen Community Service, Woden Community Service and YWCA Canberra. The ACT Government funds STS through the Community Services Directorate.
STS tenancy support workers will talk to you about your situation, exploring options and working out a plan. They can:
- Make referrals for specialist legal or financial advice
- Link you to other services
- Advocate with property managers and other parties, and
- Support you through the steps required to sustain your tenancy.
Tenancy Support covers any type of tenancy: public housing, private rental, mortgage.
The STS housing options worker will work with you to explore your options and provide advice on how to secure a community housing or private rental tenancy.
Housing Options is for people who have the income and capacity to sustain a community or private rental.
