Homes Out West

In October 2023, Kirinari and Homes Out West made a joint decision to merge. 

About Homes Out West 

Homes Out West is a registered community housing provider which has been operating in the south western Riverina region of NSW since 1984. In the earlier years, the organisation was known as Deniliquin Community Tenancy Scheme. A government initiative in recent years to enhance community housing has seen Homes Out West grow significantly, with the transfer of all Housing NSW properties in the region to Homes Out West’s management.

Homes Out West offers long term housing options under the Residential Tenancy Act. Applicants apply for housing and are assessed for eligibility, which is determined by NSW Government policy.

Appropriate housing is then provided dependent on vacancies and movement within current housing stock. 

Why did we merge?

Merging provides significant opportunities for both Homes Out West and Kirinari to diversify into new markets and offer expanded services in the communities we already serve – meaning we can empower and support more people in rural and regional areas. 

The values and strategic objectives of our organisations are closely aligned and are centred around breaking down barriers and creating more opportunities for vulnerable cohorts of people in regional Australia. Working in partnership will help us to maintain this focus but will allow us to offer more wrap-around supports to people who need it and increase our impact.  

Will this impact Kirinari customers?

The merger will not cause any practical impacts for Kirinari customers. 

The partnership will, however, provide more opportunities for Kirinari customers in the future as it will support the growth and diversification of the organisation. 

When does the merger take effect?

The organisations officially merged in October 2023.
