Life skills program

 

Overview

The purpose of this program is to improve environmental health in the 'town camps' in Alice Springs. The program supports people in the town camps to maintain their own housing.

This is a pilot program that is based on community development principles. The program:

  • takes place in people's homes
  • involves working with whole households, not just individuals
  • takes into account the particular life skills each household needs to develop in order to maintain its housing.

The program helps tenants to develop life skills in these areas:

  • home hygiene
  • do it yourself (DIY) maintenance
  • budgeting
  • consumer rights
  • tenant rights and responsibilities
  • requesting repairs and maintenance
  • accessing support services.
