    Zac’s story

    “I got diagnosed with schizophrenia a few years ago. I didn’t take that real well so I started getting into a bit of trouble too. Mum and I were fighting a lot. 

    I moved into a flat out in Moonah but that didn’t last long. I kept getting unwell and was in and out of hospital. Mum was really good but she didn’t really know what to do to help and didn’t want me living back at home with her and my little brother. 

    One of the social workers in the hospital gave me a pamphlet about Bilton Lodge and explained how much it cost to live there. They said they could ring up and get more information for me if I wanted. I thought it couldn’t hurt.

    I was a bit scared that they would be really strict there and I couldn’t come and go when I wanted and sort of do my own thing. I ended up moving in though, they said I could do a trial and see if I liked it. 

    I’ve been there about 2 years now. I still get unwell sometimes but everyone is really good there and they help me when I need it.”

    Funding 

    Bilton Lodge is funded through the State Government. It is a partnership between Anglicare and Housing Tasmania to provide supported residential accommodation for Tasmanians on low incomes.

    Cody’s story

    “I had been homeless for 4 years since I was 14 and because of that my schooling was pretty poor and I couldn’t get a job.

    When I first heard about Trinity Hill I thought that it might be ok for me cos I was staying at mate’s places and in and out of shelters. I had nowhere to call my own.

    Anyway I went to Housing Connect and they helped me apply for a unit here and linked me to some other stuff to help me get my stuff sorted. Like I’m even cooking my own food now!

    Since I came into Trinity I’ve had an opportunity to look at doing some stuff at college that I wouldn’t have had done if I wasn’t here.

    Yeah, it’s good; I mind my own business and have met some really good people who I can talk to when I need to and do some fun activities.”

Jake’s story

“Things were really bad after dad died. Mum didn’t cope too well. I don’t think us kids helped but we were pretty sad about it too.   

Mum started drinking a lot and we stopped going to school and then we were all fighting a lot. My brothers and I got into a few good fights, not just with each other but with some of the kids down the road and at school. One day mum just snapped, she told me to pack my bags and get out or she’d call the cops. 

I didn’t know where to go. I talked to one of the social workers from school and they rang Youthcare. I ended up staying there for a couple of weeks. 

They were really great but I wanted to go home. Mum wasn’t keen to have me back. I guess I was pretty horrible to her before I left. The worker at Youthcare got mum in for a chat. They talked to us about getting some counselling and maybe even some counselling for my brothers as well. I’m still at Youthcare, but mum and I went and talked to a counsellor and we both want to work things out so I can go back home. Things are looking up.”
