Fundraise

You’ve heard it said, there’s no place like home. Ever wondered what that would sound like to a single mum or a distressed gentleman who have no place to go? The reality is, for many across South Eastern Sydney, home - a safe place to sleep - simply does not exist. The impacts of domestic violence, homelessness, addiction, unaffordable housing, and family breakdown are driving many in our community to the margins of society.

As our name suggests, we are a platform, a place of transition and compassion where people can stay, recover, belong, and prepare for a new future. 

Our Vision and Culture

Platform Nine is a community of compassion which exists to provide temporary and crisis accommodation for individuals or families who have survived domestic violence or been impacted by homelessness. Through providing emergency accommodation it is our mission to connect, support, and empower people toward longer term housing solutions and independent living. 

Our culture is one that is founded on safety, family, community, and belonging. Everything we do has our clients best interests in mind. This means we are client-centred, non-judgemental, and we don't discriminate based on any race, religion, gender, or sexuality. Platform Nine is a genuinely inclusive accommodation service that meets the needs of everyone who accesses our services. 

Our Impact

Since we opened our doors in 2015, we have housed and assisted 599 women, children and men. This number includes:

  • 49 people in 2015,
  • 60 people in 2016,
  • 166 people in 2017,
  • 324 people in 2018.

Our Crisis Accommodation service has a success rate of over 90% in supporting clients into longer term housing solutions. Kingsway Care is also South Eastern Sydney’s largest provider of adult Temporary and Crisis Housing.
