As a seniors lifestyle and care provider, IRT runs other services and programs seeking to assist seniors experiencing circumstances that may disadvantage their ability to access care, services and accommodation.

This includes the provision of independent living places subsidised by the Federal Government’s National Rental Affordability Scheme (NRAS), assistance for homeless seniors and those at risk of homelessness through the Assistance with Care & Housing for the Aged Services (ACHA)

The National Rental Affordability Scheme (NRAS), an initiative by the Federal Government, seeks to address the shortage of affordable rental housing.

NRAS allocates places within Communities, allowing low to moderate income earners to access affordable accommodation by providing rent at 20% below market rates.

This funding allows financially disadvantaged people who normally would not be able to afford the entry contribution into our Lifestyle Communities to share in IRT products and services and become a part of our IRT communities

IRT currently provides affordable rental accomodation at IRT Peakhurst, IRT Macarthur, IRT Woonona, IRT Towradgi Park, IRT Diment Towers and IRT William Beach Gardens.

The next step is easy. Get in touch today and one ouf our friendly Customer Service Team members will be able to answer any questions you may have. Call 134 IRT or you can make an enquiry online.
