Opportunity Pathways Social Impact Investment
The Opportunity Pathways – Social Impact Investment (OP-SII) is a trial program based on Opportunity Pathways (a three year initiative under Future Directions for Social Housing in NSW). It aims to help people receiving social housing assistance to access education, training and work.
About the program
The Opportunity Pathways – Social Impact Investment (OP-SII) is a voluntary program that supports social housing tenants, Rent Choice recipients and applicants on the NSW Housing Register (and household members of these groups).
The program helps clients gain and retain employment through access to tailored case management support, training, education and employment opportunities.
You may be interested in the OP-SII if you:
- are not working
- are seeking a job
- want to work more hours or
- want to improve your employment situation.
The NSW Government has partnered with local OP-SII providers that can support you to work towards your employment goals and greater housing independence (if it’s appropriate for your situation).
The previous Opportunity Pathways program closed across NSW in June 2022 and from 1 July 2022 was replaced by the OP-SII in four locations:
- Hunter Central Coast
- New England
- South Western Sydney
- Western NSW
