The Rent Support Programme was developed by Kineara and works to prevent homelessness by supporting people who are in debt and at risk of eviction. The programme works with residents who are in rent arrears and offers a short-term, wrap-around support service for 10 weeks to help them into a better place. Housing providers who are experiencing difficulties engaging residents can use the programme to build a relationship with their residents and help them sustain rent payments.
The Rent Support Programme has a 97% success rate in preventing evictions and has been successful in addressing debt concerns, rebuilding the relationship between housing provider and residents, reducing rent arrears and setting-up payment plans.
