Riverwood has a large demographic living in public housing and represents greater levels of disability than many other urban communities. It has the highest density of bedsit accommodation of all the NSW Department of Housing Estates (250 total). Many residents:

  • Receive the Disability Support Pension
  • Lack a family or supporters to live with
  • Have not been able to successfully maintain private rental accommodation
  • Have chronic disabilities
  • Didn’t grow up nearby or choose to live in this community.

According to SANE Australia, approximately one in five Australians are affected by mental illness every year. Mental illness is a major cause of social isolation and marginalisation in Australia.
