Appointments with Housing SA
You may need to attend an appointment with Housing SA when you apply for:
- priority consideration for public or community housing
- help to find or maintain private rental housing
- an urgent transfer to another public housing property.
Contact Housing SA by phoning 131 299 for advice or to discuss your situation. They’ll book an appointment at a Housing SA office for you if you need one.
Ask Housing SA to organise an interpreter for you if you need one for your appointment, it's a free service.
You can ask someone to come with you to your appointments, such as a friend, relative or support worker.
During your appointment, Housing SA will ask about your current situation, and offer you advice about available housing options based on your needs.
You’ll be presented with a range of housing options to consider. This may include:
- support to find or maintain private rental housing
- registering for public and community housing if you can’t access or maintain other forms of housing like renting privately
- being connected to other support services that may be able to help you.
Bring any documents Housing SA asks you to provide like proof of income and identity or any special circumstances you may have such as health needs.
Housing SA may ask for your consent to contact your support provider, for instance, a health practitioner or social worker, to verify your circumstances. It’s important to keep your appointment and arrive on time.

- use the time remaining from your appointment
- book another appointment.
