Lady Bowen Trust provides ongoing support for Roma House
The Lady Bowen Trust is focussed on providing practical help to people who had been homeless to transition to more stable housing arrangements. Roma House clients in Spring Hill in inner Brisbane were the first beneficiaries of the Trust, and although the Trust now provides support to people throughout Queensland through our partnerships, the Trust continues to support people in need through Roma House.
The practical support provided by the Lady Bowen Trust is intended to complement the very important work of charities such as Mission Australia by tailoring help to people who have complex, individual needs. This may be by providing simple items such as linen or household goods to help establish a home or by assisting with education and training costs so that people may re-enter the workforce.
The Trust was launched in November 2006 by the Queensland Government, with funding provided by the former Queensland Department of Housing and the Residential Tenancies Authority.
