Accommodation

There are a number of community and government agencies that can help you find support if you are at risk of or experiencing homelessness. 

Your  first step in finding help is to access an organization. Community organisations are designated access points for assisting people depending on where they are located.

To receive assistance call the Housing and Homelessness Support Line in your state.  Once you have been assessed, you will be referred to the programs that are best suited to your needs.
