Through Non-Government Organisation (NGO) Housing the Kimberley, the region was able to attract and retain vital staff. With such staff claiming “housing attached to the employment is one of the reasons that attracted me to the job here…” By attracting staff, the region is able to handle pressures; including increasing mental health issues.
Prior to NGO housing, staff housing options were to live in a caravan park or stay in share houses with other staff. Without housing, organisations struggled to recruit employees as the work environment as appealing.
Since RfR funded housing has been made available, NGO staff have claimed that it has made “a world of difference”.
