Opportunity Pathways

Are you looking for a job or wanting to improve your current job situation?  We can help!

Opportunity Pathways is a voluntary state wide program that provides support to social housing clients to access employment, training and work opportunities.

By joining Opportunity Pathways, you or your household members can be supported in finding employment and sourcing opportunities to obtain training and qualifications. Even if you already have a job, we may be able to help you keep it or change to a different job that better suits your goals.

Am I eligible to participate in Opportunity Pathways?

If you are aged 17 years and over, you may be eligible to participate if you are:

  • Living in public, community or Aboriginal housing, or a household member
  • Receiving a Rent Choice subsidy, or
  • An approved social housing applicant on the NSW Housing Register and
  • Willing and ready to obtain employment and participate in a training plan

To check if you’re eligible, please feel free to get in touch and we can discuss criteria with you.

What are the benefits of participating in Opportunity Pathways?

Participants have a dedicated case coordinator working with them to create a Training and Employment Housing Plan. The plan will include goals and activities that will assist you to achieve employment matched to your goals and aspirations. Once you are in employment, your case coordinator will continue to support you for a period of time to ensure you retain your employment.

The program can also provide practical financial assistance that can help you in achieving your work goals such as money towards obtaining a license, work tools and transport. You will also have access to attending available workshops and mentoring opportunities that can help with resume writing and developing interview skills.

    Participant Testimonial

    “Our participant is 53 years old woman who lost her job in November 2019 due to bullying and poor management. She used all her savings and Credit Card funds to maintain her weekly rent payments while desperately trying to secure a new job.

    Being a 53 year old woman she knew it would be challenging for her to find employment due to her age. She had to go on the Centrelink Job Seeker Program for the first time in her life as she was unable to pay her weekly rent.

    Even though she was feeling like the world was against her she was not giving up. We referred her to Opportunity Pathways program who straight away assisted her with her employment search! They helped her with a resume and used their connections to link her with potential employers.

    Our participant was put on the Rent Choice Assist Subsidy to relieve her financial burden and help her focus on securing another job. This subsidy helped her sustain her tenancy and within 6 months she was back in the workforce and off her Centrelink benefits.

    Our participant has now requested to exit from the Rent Choice Assist Program even though we offered her the opportunity to remain on the program for another month.”
