Funding Received for Bayswater Development
Women’s Housing Ltd has recently received $5.2 million funding from the Victorian Government towards the construction of 24 new apartments (8 x 1-bedroom and 16 x 2-bedroom) for women with or without children who are escaping family violence. The new apartments will be built on Women’s Housing Ltd owned land in Bayswater.
“We all know there is a pressing need for more housing for vulnerable Victorians, and WHL is delighted with the support from State Government and the City of Knox in helping us create new homes for women and children escaping family violence.” – Judy Line CEO, Women’s Housing Limited.
An article announcing the Bayswater project has been published in the Knox Leader News 09, Tuesday, August 29 2017. The article states that women and families fleeing domestic violence will be offered secure accommodation at apartments to be built in Knox.
In the article Eastern Metropolitan state Labor MP Shaun Leane said the accommodation would help curb the number of women and families who ended up homeless.
“This support will ensure that Victorians in need are assisted with safe, stable housing as they get back on their feet”
