The Parramatta Housing Access has been launched. The project was developed by a steering committee involving CMRC, Settlement Services International (SSI) and real estate agents. CMRC Settlement Services Manager Aurelia Rahman said “the objectives of the Housing Access Project are twofold, 1) to develop stronger relationships with local real estate and 2) to build the capacity of CALD community leaders. We’re shifting the focus from crisis and emergency relief to early intervention.

"This is done by providing a pathway to real estate property managers mainly in Parramatta LGA to identify tenants who may be struggling, and to refer them to service providers who will be able to empower them and help them take the necessary steps to avoid eviction. Educating and supporting tenants in this way benefits everyone in the community, from real estate agents who will save money and avoid stress, to government and community service providers.”
