Keeping my Place

Keeping my Place is a proven early intervention response designed to prevent youth homelessness through the provision of tailored assistance for young people who are living in private rental, but at risk of losing their home due to financial or personal crisis.

Keeping my Place provides the support, resources and opportunities young people need to stabilise their lives through addressing the factors behind their housing stress, such as rent arrears or utility bills, backed with personal support to maintain their existing housing and avert the risk of homelessness.

We believe that with the right support, resources and opportunities, all young people can succeed. Keeping my Place harnesses young people’s potential and capacities, utilising their often untapped talents as resources to overcome hurdles and thrive.  Where inexperience and lack of knowledge of their tenant rights and responsibilities result in situations that could potentially lead to eviction, the Keeping my Place team will coach young people and, when required, provide financial assistance or back them with a rental guarantee.
