The Petrus Community has been providing supported housing and related services to homeless people since 1972.

Housing First

Housing First is a project that aims to improve the lives of and support vulnerable people.

There are seven Housing First principles:

  • People have the right to a home
  • Flexible support is provided for as long as it is needed
  • Housing and support are separated
  • Individuals have choice and control
  • An active engagement approach is used
  • The service is based on people's strengths, goals and aspirations
  • A harm reduction approach is used.

At Petrus we are committed through our services to support three outcomes of Housing First:

  • Supporting people into a new tenancy
  • Improving the wellbeing of the people we support
  • Helping those people meet their aspirations

We are your partner of choice for Housing First and homelessness. We provide a wide range of volunteering, housing and support options tailored to someone’s individual needs and aspirations.

We work across sectors within the public and private sector to meet the challenges relating to homelessness and Housing First.

Contact us today to find out more about how we could work in partnership to achieve this together.
