Formed in 2015 following a merger of two well-respected agencies - Hanover Welfare Services and HomeGround Services, we are a secular, independent provider of choice for clients and the "go to" organisation on homelessness for government, media, philanthropy, private donors and the community.

Tenancy Plus provides case management support to public housing tenants and residents and some community housing tenants to achieve positive client outcomes and prevent homelessness. Tenancy Plus operates with a strong focus on sustaining tenancies in consideration of a vulnerable and disadvantaged client group and works to address needs and risk factors that make tenancies vulnerable.

The role of Tenancy Plus is to ensure that clients maintain safe, appropriate and sustainable accommodation by providing support to achieve goals and address issues that are impacting negatively on a tenancy. Case Managers work within an outreach based support model of service delivery and provide a case management model approach that includes assessment, case planning, case co-ordination and liaison.

The successful candidate will also have working knowledge of the Residential Tenancies Act, VCAT, Office of Housing policies and procedures.
