Access Housing’s Opportunities Fund

17 Jan 2020

Are you an Access Housing tenant who is planning to begin training / education?
Are you already studying and need assistance towards fees and associated costs?
Do you need financial assistance to help you follow your passion?
Do you want to improve your health and wellbeing?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, Access Housing’s Opportunities Fund may be able to assist you.

Access Housing’s Opportunities Fund provides successful applicants with up to $1,000 to support registered learning and up to $500 for skills development and wellness activities.

Access Housing evolved and renamed what was previously known as the Access Housing Creating Choices Scholarship Fund in July 2019 to broaden eligibility for aspirational tenants to seek support to achieve their goals.  Since the program evolved, we have received applications from aspiring artists, writers, photographers, gardeners as well as from tenants pursuing traditional study to gain vocational qualifications.

Access Housing Tenant Engagement and Capacity Building Officer Alex Kepes said it has been a privilege supporting and working with so many inspirational tenants who have benefited from the Opportunities Fund.

“I have seen such a growth in tenants’ self-confidence and pride when goals are achieved and their talents recognised,” Alex said.
