Our services

You may be referred to stay in our accommodation, receive one to one support or to access one of our programs.

Hanover South Yarra provides accommodation for young people experiencing homelessness in Melbourne. We provide somewhere safe and secure where you can stay while you are supported to find more stable accommodation. If you stay with us, you will have a dedicated worker who will support you. Our staff will help you to put together a plan which will have positive steps you can take to improve your situation.

One to one support
A worker will meet you with on a regular basis. This might mean offering you support with your current living situation, or assisting with your search for safe, affordable and secure housing. As well as offering support with housing, we can:

  • connect you with employment and training opportunities
  • advise on financial and legal issues
  • talk to other organisations including CentreLink, your school or college on your behalf
  • put you in touch with other organisations who can help, including legal services, counselling providers, health services, and drug and alcohol services.
