About

Thousands of Victorians working in retail, travel, hospitality and customer service have become unemployed due to the required public health measures and economic downturn of the COVID-19 pandemic.

These newly unemployed Victorians face the prospect of becoming homeless if they are not quickly connected to expert advice.

A grant to Justice Connect is enabling them to increase their online resources and self-help tools so that vulnerable people can find expert information about tenancy and advice to remain housed.

The 'Getting the right help when affected by COVID-19' project aligns with these United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals:

1. No Poverty 11. Sustainable Cities and Communities

Impact Areas outcomes

 
2. Interventions that prevent entry into or entrenchment in homelessness.
