Could you help us as we support others?

We have partnered with The Priority Project to support woman who have experienced domestic and family violence (DFV). This service is supported by Mission Australia and The Salvation Army. They are working with agencies, including us, in conjunction with property owners to secure permanent rentals for women.

We are seeking interest from our owners – asking you to consider prioritising your rentals to women who are needing a permanent place to call home. This new way of prioritising women creates opportunity to help and you do not have to reduce your rent, although if willing, you may wish to by a small percentage.

DFV is the leading cause of homelessness for woman and children in Australia. It’s often incredibly difficult to secure a private rental as a single woman, especially if there has been trauma and distractions, plus in this tight rental market this process has become especially challenging.

How does it work?

  1. Investment property owners (YOU) list their rental property on a confidential rental register.
  2. The Partnership Broker and services match women with appropriate properties on the rental register.
  3. If there is a suitable property match, a lease is signed just like a regular tenant would and they will be continually supported by their housing or DFV service and us.

Please let us know if you’d like to help, especially if your rental property is soon up for renewal! If it’s not, we can still note that you’re interested now for when we are ready to secure tenants.

The ‘normal’ processes for your property will be followed, the only difference is your tenant will have increased support from support agencies and us.

We’d love the opportunity to discuss this project and how all parties will be supported.

Please email us on thepriorityproject@missionaustralia.com.au or call on 0447 213 986
