On Tuesday 31 July 2018 Women's Housing Ltd assisted Eastern Homelessness Network in their Walk to End Homelessness.
Lots of sunshine, smiles and cake to raise awareness for a very serious issue!
Women’s Housing Ltd are excited to announce the Housing Registrar has approved our application to become a Housing Association.

ADRA have generously donated welcome packs full of essential items for our tenants.
What started out as a full van soon got emptied. Rebecca Aurient from ADRA assisted Jacqui to deliver the packs to our THM tenants.
Thank you ADRA for your continued and ongoing support!
On Friday 25th May Money For Jam Participants were treated to a special guest presenter.
Prabin Guatam from VIS Network, a digital marketing consultancy, volunteered his time and expert knowledge to talk about marketing and how the women could use digital marketing to further their business ideas. Prabin encouraged all women to find their passion and belief in their ideas.
“Start small and do it well!”
The woman practiced their 30-second ‘elevator pitch’. The session was well attended and there was a buzz in the room.
Early May was a busy time at the rooming house with tenants benefiting from two different workshops.
On 4 May, Nigel Joseph from EACH attended the Berwick Rooming House to discuss the services EACH can offer regarding drug and alcohol use. EACH recognise that health and wellbeing is significantly and negatively affected by factors such as unemployment, homelessness, financial difficulties, social exclusion and addiction so they offer a wide range of supports to assist members of the community to lead happier, healthier lives.
On 11 May, Lisa Hansen from Casey North Community Information and Support Service attended the Berwick Rooming House to run a financial literacy workshop. Casey North CISS has a range of services and programs that have been developed to respond to the pressing needs of the local community.
The feedback from the tenants was very positive.
Thank you Nigel and Lisa for your time and support.
Guess who turned up on her bike to have a look at Women’s Housing Ltd’s new development…Senator Janet Rice.
Senator Janet Rice was in the neighbourhood and interested in our housing specifically for women at Newport. She is currently setting up a trust for green energy initiatives for housing.
