Collab Projects

Homelessness Prevention Week

A range of activities are held during the Homelessness Prevention Week to promote greater understanding of the many issues related to homelessness, promote local services working together and shared advocacy regarding a national plan and commitment to end homelessness.

Inner South Rooming House Network (ISRHN)

ISRHN is convened by PPCG and brings together rooming house residents and staff from agencies accross Melbourne’s South Inner suburbs. The ISRHN participates in the Homelessness Memorial held in St Kilda annually each June to both commemorate and raise awareness about the experiences of those in rooming houses, insecure housing and homelessness.

financial counselling and capability

PPCG works together with Good Shepherd Australia & New Zealand (GSANZ) to offer financial counselling and financial capability appointments at our site in St Kilda. This is an important partnership that assists community members to not only manage their financial crisis, but also to explore and build on financial skills and resilience and avoid financial crisis in the future. 

work this way employment program

PPCG, Uniting and Christ Church Mission have joined together to offer a hands on employment training course for individuals that have found it difficult to break into employment. Offering streams in hospitality and horticulture, the course includes opportunities to gain work experience with local businesses and participate in accredited training such as Safe Food Handling and First Aid.

SPARC is a partnership between City of Port Phillip, PPCG and Uniting Prahran.
