Providing hardship assistance through rainwater tanks

We’re proud to be supporting South East Water’s Rainwater Tank Hardship Assistance program by providing rainwater tanks and digital meters for Dynamic Housing.

Dynamic Housing is a Melbourne-based organisation that provides safe, comfortable and affordable housing for vulnerable women and children who may have experienced family violence and/or are dealing with ongoing financial hardship.

Dynamic Housing currently have 26 customers living in their properties. Their program aims to help women who need accommodation but either can’t afford or are struggling to be approved for a regular rental property. Dynamic Housing also assist their customers to find permanent housing arrangements when they’re ready to move on.

The rainwater tanks will provide rainwater for the toilet, washing machine and garden. Using rainwater for these purposes will allow these customers to reduce their drinking water consumption and as a result, will help to reduce the cost of their water bills.

The Rainwater Tank Hardship Assistance program is off to a great start, recently installing our first tank in Cranbourne North. Our Priority Plumbing team are looking forward to continuing to support the program with more rainwater tank and meter installations in 2020.
