The aim of this Service is to provide a stable and safe living environment for up to 20 young people (at any one time) for the duration of their need to assist that young person towards independent living and to reduce demand on the Social Housing Register. The funding is intended to make the Service viable and financially sustainable.
Proposals are sought for areas throughout New Zealand with a youth housing need, but particularly for Auckland and Christchurch as most of the young people currently on the Social Housing Register are in these areas.
MSD intends to commence housing young people off the Social Housing Register by 30 June 2015.
