Paddy’s Place is a purpose built facility incorporating nine bedsit style units and one two bedroom unit. In partnership with Housing NSW, Paddy’s Place provides crisis accommodation for clients eligible for temporary accommodation under the Temporary Assistance Program. Staff at Paddy’s Place provides homeless clients with support in seeking alternative accommodation and with referrals to appropriate support agencies. On site staffing provides a safe and secure environment and assists clients to link with support services to resolve their long term housing options.
