New England Regional Sustainable Housing and Homelessness Program hosting events to help prevent homelessness in Moree

NERSHH aiming to build connections and help prevent homelessness

In an attempt to help reduce risk of homelessness and raise awareness for what services are available, EACH is running two events in Moree through the New England Regional Sustainable Housing and Homelessness Program (NERSHH).

On Friday, February 21, there is a speed networking event to help build connections between service providers in the community.

"It's for all of the services in Moree who don't seem to know what each of us have on offer," NERSHH housing and homelessness coordinator Tracey Jack said.

"It's a speed dating event for services."

It's all about collaboration and allows services to know what funding and programs other services in town have, which can help their clients access all services that are available to them.

The speed networking event runs from 2pm to 4pm on February 21 at Moree Family Support.

On Friday, February 28 from 6.30pm at the Max Centre, the Living Room program will be held, which is designed to strengthen partnerships between real estate agents and homelessness services and sustain tenancies.

"It's aimed at starting a conversation that we can have twice yearly with real estate and show how we can help them prevent tenancies that end in homelessness," Ms Jack said.

"There are lots and lots of things that are available for real estates and tenants to stop them sliding into homelessness."

The evening will provide an opportunity for real estates and services to discuss ways in which they can help prevent homelessness.

RSVP to tracey.jack@each.com.au by February 19 for the speed networking event and February 26 for the Living Room Program.
