Supporting clients who are renting

Many tenants are struggling and engaging with service providers who may not work in the tenancy field, or who may be new to it or who want to know more about the services and supports available to tenants, including tenants with disability.

Are you supporting clients who are renting?

The Building Tenancy Skills Project (Shelter WA and PWdWA) has collaborated with Circle Green, Consumer Protection and NDIS to develop a workshop to support your engagement with clients who are renting. The workshop will provide tools to allow you to more confidently refer or directly assist a client (including a client with a disability) who is struggling with their tenancy situation. Resources and information in plain English will be provided that you can use and share to clients. This workshop is for anyone supporting a client who is renting including allied health workers, NDIS providers, property managers, tenancy officers, housing support workers, local government staff, disability and carer support services, mental health workers, peer workers, tenancy advocates, disability advocates and financial counsellors.

Morning tea and light lunch provided. This is also a networking opportunity. Please bring your promotional and educational resources to share. Co-hosted by Consumer Protection, Shelter WA, People With disability WA, Circle Green, and the Building Tenancy Skills Project with support from NDIS.
