NEWS UPDATE - We have merged with Kirinari Community ServicesKirinari and Homes Out West have made a joint decision to merge.
Why are we merging?
Merging provides significant opportunities for both Homes Out West and Kirinari to diversify into new markets and offer expanded services in the communities we already serve – meaning we can empower and support more people in rural and regional areas.
The values and strategic objectives of our organisations are closely aligned and are centred around breaking down barriers and creating more opportunities for vulnerable cohorts of people in regional Australia. Working in partnership will help us to maintain this focus but will allow us to offer more wrap-around supports to people who need it and increase our impact.
How will the merger impact Homes Out West tenants?
We’re committed to making this transition seamless for you and you will not experience any disruption to your current tenancy. All Homes Out West tenancy agreements will remain in place and the Homes Out West staff will remain here to support you.
The organisation will continue to be run by the same local people, delivering the same services to tenants, and supporting our communities. Our values and approach to running the business will also remain unchanged.
When does the merger take effect?
The organisations officially merged in October 2023.
