Temporary accommodation during COVID-19

The accommodation support that TAS provided throughout the COVID-19 Alert Levels was a temporary measure to assist people who were displaced due to COVID-19. A number of government programmes have been stood up that can help people who require ongoing support, however TAS is still available for the purpose of self-isolation if required.
