Collaboration between Yilli Housing, HK Training and Consultancy and Somerville has resulted in the No Interest Loan Scheme (NILS) being available in Belyuen.
For many years the community of Belyuen have been seeking access to NILS, however distance and transport costs have hindered this happening.
As a result of a number of determined people and their commitment to working together these hurdles have been overcome.
Rosie, a tenancy support worker from Yilli, Toni and Hassan from HK Training & Consultancy and Kelly, Somerville’s NILS Coordinator travel to Belyuen each month offering a number of services including financial counselling, NILS and supporting the community with general financial enquiries.
The initial response to these joint visits has been very positive and we look forward to continuing this ongoing collaboration in support of the Belyuen residents.
