Foot in the door: the opportunity of young people in tenancy

Recorded on 13 May 2019

About the webinar:

Less than one per cent of private rentals are affordable for people on low incomes in Greater Sydney.*

Join Lauren Brown to learn how improved government and community services are helping young people maintain successful tenancies and how your landlords can benefit. 

Topics covered include:

  • Working with community services to connect with new supported tenants
  • Services, subsidies and support available to help vulnerable tenants maintain tenancies
  • Being trauma informed and how it will help you maintain tenancies
  • Initiatives available to assist young people in living skills, financial management and employment
  • Who can help? An agent’s directory of local community services for tenants
  • How to talk to your landlords about accepting young tenants

Awareness of social issues, including mental health, family and domestic violence and ethical practice is increasingly important in the real estate industry, especially in property management. Register today to navigate these issues as an informed agent.

This webinar is part of the Foot in the Door collaboration between Yfoundations and REINSW, with support from the NSW Department of Family and Community Services.
