New plan for families with related children in their care

CHILDREN in care will be part of a new pilot scheme to help families with related children in their care to access larger, more suitable homes.

The Homes for Carers initiative offers incentives to property owners and matches private landlords to eligible tenants with the aim of giving family carers access to better housing options in their area. The Department for Child Protection and Family Support, the Housing Authority and |Foundation Housing have joined forces to fund the three-year |project.

The scheme is initially sourcing properties in Rivervale and surrounding areas.
