Wyndham Vale

Empowered Liveability, in partnership with genU, is looking for applicants who are interested in sharing their home with two other people. 

The current tenants enjoy the company of family and friends, and participate in a variety of social activities in the local area.

For the most part, they’re fairly independent in getting out and about on their own. They either work, volunteer, study or attend other support activities throughout the day.
