The City of Melbourne’s Make Room involves the refurbishment of a Council-owned building to provide studio accommodation and to house essential wraparound support services for up to 50 people experiencing homelessness and sleeping rough in the city. 

Make Room is a partnership between many representatives of Melbourne’s generous and caring community. The philanthropic and corporate sectors are supporting the City of Melbourne, the Victorian Government and Unison Housing to help deliver this important project.
The redevelopment of the building located at 602 Little Bourke Street will cost $20 million and is set to be completed in 2023.

Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation is accepting donations for this initiative via a Giving Account which will fund Unison Housing, the charitable community housing provider leading this project.

Support Make Room by donating to the City of Melbourne 'Pathways Innovation Fund' Charitable Giving Account.

Donations made from 18 September 2021 will be allocated to support the Make Room project.
