This service allows international students to book and reside at a room in another person’s home for a varying period of times. Each homestay can provide an individually catered service in relation to the period of time the room is needed, what meals are provided and any additional needs.
A Homestay is designed for an International Student to experience the Australian way of life. A homestay allows an international student the opportunity to stay in a warm, welcoming Australian household, rather than in an impersonal apartment, dorm, or hotel. It gives guests the opportunity to experience local culture and practice their English in a family setting.
Once you have identified your Education Provider and the campus you will be attending then we can assist with your accommodation requirements. We will identify the homestay which best suits your needs taking into consideration proximity to your campus, access to public transport and any other cultural needs.
Our service is available across Australia including metropolitan and regional areas.
Upon submitting a homestay placement request we will contact you acknowledging receipt of your request. We will gain an understanding of what you wish to gain from your homestay and your specific needs based on the following:
– Location. Close to beach or nature
– Religious requirements
– Cultural needs
– Dietary requirements
– Medical conditions such as allergies to household pets
– How long you wish to stay in the same house
– Would you prefer your own room
– Your level of English
– Do your require a homestay in your native language
– Any other personal requirements which may be required to determine a suitable homestay provider
All homestays have relevant State approval to be with children.

I was blown away by the amazing support I received from the Safer in the Home program. I feel safe staying in my home with my children now that the locks have been changed and broken window has been replaced.
The Safer in the Home program has assisted seven of my clients and their families to feel safer in their homes so that they can move forward with their lives in a positive way... I fully endorse the program which provides a thorough safety assessment of the home environment conducted by qualified and skilled assessors before upgrades are carried out. The program model has proven to be a valued resource in minimising the impact of domestic and family violence for the clients I assist in our community.
Just wanted to say thank you for the help and support you and your company have done for me and my family, since you have been out to my place to help with advice on security and getting security cameras installed we are already feeling much safer, the cameras have helped with my anxiety knowing it's recording 24 hrs a day, I feel I can finally sleep at night and not look out the window constantly worried for our safety.
Thank you so much for your contribution and support to our clients. Your service has been very professional and assistance has been excellent. We look forward to continuing to work with you and your team , and increasing access to safety for our women and children. Thank you specially to Safer in the Home for allowing us to utilise this valuable program, it really is making a difference in our community.
Having the security system has changed our lives dramatically, not only do we feel safe, we no longer have to peek out windows to see if we are being watched or stalked, and are able to record and playback any previous movement. The installation crew were exceptional, ensuring every angle of the property were covered that the system was easy to use and navigate, and that recorded info could be downloaded easily and efficiently if needed as proof. The install was very tidy and clean with no damage or mess to my property. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!
I cannot speak highly enough of the two representatives from the Safer in the Home program, very supportive, even after case was closed they still send me messages to check my safety.
We strongly support the Safer in the Home program and believe it is a valuable service which greatly contributes to the ongoing safety of individuals who have experienced domestic and family violence... The feedback received from individuals who have been referred to the program is overwhelmingly positive.
