From 1 March 2020, the Northern and Western Homelessness Networks will place an embargo on referrals to a particular private rooming house provider that does not meet appropriate standards.
The Networks have asked that others support the boycott by not referring clients to any SLM, DS Leasing, North West Accommodation (NWA) and McDON facilities.
Last year, the Networks launched A Crisis in Crisis – the appalling state of emergency accommodation in Melbourne’s north and west report. Since the release of the report, the Networks have continued to advocate for the development of more long-term housing and for appropriate emergency accommodation.
Find out how to support the embargo.
