Tenancy Advice and Advocacy Program: Important changes to service
ECLC has been operating its Tenancy Advice and Advocacy Program since 2012, mainly funded by Consumer Affairs Victoria (CAV).
Recently, CAV made significant changes to this program and will no longer be funding ECLC for this work and has allocated funding to another agency. ECLC is therefore regrettably closing its tenancy program from July 1, 2017. The exception is for Deakin University students who will continue to receive tenancy assistance through the Sort It partnership.
From July 1, all other private tenancy-related matters should be referred to:
- Wesley Mission Ringwood (Outer East – Ringwood Office): Ph: (03) 8870 4000
- UnitingCare Harrison (Inner East – Box Hill Office) Ph: (03) 9871 8700
ECLC thanks all of the partner agencies that have worked closely with its team to provide holistic and high quality legal help to very large numbers of people experiencing disadvantage, vulnerability and significant tenancy difficulties over the last five years.
ECLC remains highly committed to people experiencing or at risk of homelessness and will continue to work closely for and with this client group through a range of strategies.
