Kirinari and Homes Out West have made a joint decision to 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.
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.
The organisations officially merged in October 2023.
