Housing Connect Front Door Services - Launceston

Housing Connect Front Door services provide the first point of contact for Tasmanians requiring housing and housing related support. They provide immediate assistance, assessment and referral for people who need help with housing or who are homeless.

Front Door staff identify and prioritise people's housing needs and provide information about their housing options and choices. Front Door staff connect eligible Tasmanians to appropriate housing assistance and services, including:

  • Private rental assistance
  • Social housing
  • Supported accommodation
  • Crisis and Transitional Accommodation
  • Material assistance
  • After-hours assistance
  • Housing Support services.

Front Door services connect people to the service they need. They do not directly house people.

People can access the service directly by calling 1800 800 588 (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) or by calling in to their local Housing Connect office.
