Program offers 24 hour support and is aimed to transition young people to less intensive care options with minimal disruption to the young person.

Community Rent Scheme (CRS) Community housing provides affordable housing for people on low incomes, and people whose needs are not met through other housing options. AnglicareCQ provides a range of community housing options in communities around Central Queensland, from houses to units and furnished studio apartments. To be considered for community housing you need to register with the Department of Housing and Public Works, and be added to the Department’s register of need. Eligibility takes into account not just your financial status but also other factors that affect your need for housing, such as disability or illness.

National Rental Affordability Scheme (NRAS) If you’re struggling to find a suitable rental home within your budget, the National Rental Affordability Scheme could help.  The scheme gives low to moderate income earners the opportunity to rent a home for less than that property’s usual market rent. You can get started by taking the NRAS eligibility check. Eligibility is based on income, residency, and how many adults and children are living in your household.

AnglicareCQ can support and assist adults to take control of their finances and improve their health, wellbeing and connection to family and community.
