A warm welcome to clients, families and staff transferring from FACS operated services to House with No Steps

HWNS customers

House with No Steps is delighted to have been successful in the NSW Government Disability Services transfer of specialist disability services (accommodation and respite).

In October 2017, FACS will transfer services in Sydney, Northern NSW, Illawarra/Shoalhaven, New England and Southern NSW to House with No Steps. We are eager to welcome many new clients and families, getting to each and every one and providing the best possible support.

We know how dedicated and capable the specialist disability services workforce is and we are looking forward to the opportunity to meet and work with you.

Change can be daunting and we’re committed to making the transition as smooth as possible for both our new clients as well as new staff members. Continuity of care is our top priority and we have been working closely with FACS to ensure that there is minimal disruption.

House with No Steps has partnered with Compass Housing as the accommodation provider. Compass Housing is Australia’s leading community housing provider with more than 4400 properties under management across NSW and Queensland.
