Housing Connect

Connecting you to Housing and Support

Housing Connect is Tasmania’s entry point for assistance for people who are experiencing homelessness or are in housing need. It provides support and assistance with all your housing needs, from crisis accommodation to a long-term home.

Housing Connect can help you with:

  • applying for social housing, supported accommodation and other housing assistance
  • private rental products, including rental assistance, bond and rent arrears
  • seeking assistance following family violence, including rapid rehousing
  • finding a bed for the night, including referral to shelters and brokerage
  • support and advice on how to stay in your home
  • information and advice on your housing options and other housing assistance.

Anglicare Tasmania currently provides the Housing Connect front door service from our offices in Launceston, Devonport and Burnie.

On the 1st of July 2024, we will also provide the Housing Connect front door service in the South.  Until this time Colony 47 will be providing the service.

Does Housing Connect provide housing?

No, Housing Connect does not provide housing.  Housing Connect conducts assessments for housing assistance.  Social housing organisations make allocations for social housing.
