PAYCE Security Group funds accommodation for homeless youth

November 22, 2021 | News

PAYCE Security Group has joined an industry collaborative to provide supported accommodation for homeless youth.

Alarmingly, one in four Australians experiencing homelessness are children and young people aged 12 to 24. A lack of supported accommodation often results in young people attempting independent living before they have developed the necessary living skills to maintain a tenancy.

The Property Industry Foundation (PIF) is bridging the gap through transitional housing. Committed to building 125 bedrooms, PIF has already built 76 bedrooms with another 30 in development. The facilities provide stable living arrangements for young occupants as they complete school, enter the workforce and take crucial steps toward independence.

Accommodating up to four young people and two live-in carers, PIF Clayton House will provide a holistic, therapeutic live-in care program for homeless youths aged from 15 to 22 years in Melbourne’s south-east.

Due to open at the beginning of 2022, PAYCE Security Group has funded a bedroom in the six-bedroom home, which has been built by Frasers Property Group, the PIF and the Lighthouse Foundation.

“We are proud to be involved with the Property Industry Foundation House Program,” says Bridie Thomas, General Manager, PAYCE Security Group.

“It has shown us that not everyone is able to access a safe and secure home environment and how important it is to help these young people turn their lives around.”
