Are you looking for Community Housing?
YWCA National Housing is a Long Term Community Housing Provider that provides appropriate and affordable, community-managed rental housing to eligible Queenslanders who are listed on the housing register.
In Queensland, there is one application process for both community housing and public housing. All applicants are listed on a housing register, which is a record of eligible, approved applicants waiting for social housing managed by the Queensland Government. Applicants are matched based on an assessment of their housing needs. To start the application process, contact your nearest Housing Service Centre to make an appointment to discuss your housing needs.
You can find more information about eligibility requirements and applying for social housing at the Queensland Government website.
If you want more information on any of the above, please contact us on (07) 3230 3410.
