Supported Accommodation for Families
St Bart’s provides community-based supported accommodation services for families requiring low levels of support.
Accommodation is available for up to 12 months, during which time a case worker is available to support parents to work through trauma-related issues, create community networks and connect to other services and support. The case manager will also support your family to seek appropriate independent long-term accommodation in the community.
There are seven, fully furnished and self-contained units with two bedrooms which are transitional supported accommodation. There are also two houses for larger families with four bedrooms.
Please note: This is NOT crisis accommodation and there may be a waiting list for vacancies.
