You’ve done it, you’ve moved out. You found that sexy student sharehouse that dreams are made of, where there’s always a space to curl up on the couch, homely smells are wafting out from the kitchen (mostly ramen) and your housemates are there to share a social drink at the end of the day.
Moving out of home is the best, but it can really break the bank when you’re living the life of a student, apprentice or trainee. If you’re currently on the Youth Allowance train and you’re living out of home, then you’ll most likely want to get some Rent Assistance too.
Who doesn’t want a little bit of help to pay dat rent? To apply for Rent Assistance, check out the Centrelink website.
