Beddown joins inCommunity

On behalf of the Board of Directors and Members, I am pleased to provide this very important and exciting update on the future of Beddown.

After careful consideration and a thorough due diligence process, the Board has decided that Beddown will join forces with leading housing and homelessness specialist inCommunity.

In brief, Beddown will continue to operate as it does currently, under the ongoing guidance of General Manager Norm McGillivray, but will now transition across to inCommunity and report to the inCommunity Board, alongside inCommunity’s other two main services — InCommunity Connect and the Tenancy Skills Institute.

inCommunity Connect does exactly as the name suggests — it connects people to housing and community support, while the Tenancy Skills Institute helps people secure better rental outcomes through education support services.

This change is in the process of taking effect, and the Beddown Board will cease to operate in its current form.

This change represents an exciting new future for Beddown — the organisation will benefit from inCommunity’s 40 years of passion, commitment and tireless dedication to people who need support to find a home.

With Norm still driving Beddown’s day-to-day operations, coupled with inCommunity’s corporate governance framework and extensive network and expertise, I am confident that Beddown will continue to grow and provide valuable services to those who find themselves homeless.

Beddown Directors Bruce McLean, Norm McGillivray and I have all thoroughly enjoyed working for Beddown over the past three years.

We are very grateful to the many hard-working people and supporters who have helped make our time at Beddown such a rewarding and humbling experience. As I mentioned earlier, Norm will continue as Beddown’s General Manager while Bruce and I hope to stay involved with Beddown in some capacity in the future.

In the meantime, I encourage everyone to continue to support Norm during the transition period and stay committed to our cause to help end homelessness in our community.

If you want to talk about this new era of corporate governance for Beddown, please contact Norm at

Thank you, and all the very best.

Yours sincerely,

Natalie Rayment

A/Chair, Beddown
