Housing Choices Australia is an independent, national, not-for-profit housing provider that delivers high quality, accessible and affordable housing for people on lower incomes and people with disability.
We are proud of our long heritage providing secure homes and better futures for thousands of Australians who would otherwise struggle to find affordable, safe and secure accommodation. While our primary origins were in Victoria, we are now one of Australia’s largest housing providers, with a diverse housing property portfolio and residents reaching across five Australian states.
Housing Choices manages about 7000 social and affordable properties that are home to 8500 residents, in Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia, New South Wales and Tasmania. Our group housing portfolio is valued at more than $1 billion, generating an annual revenue of $100 million. We are also an Australian leader in the provision of Specialist Disability Accommodation.
We work with residents, government agencies, support service partners and community organisations to create resilient, inclusive communities. We link residents to a range of support services and programs that create opportunities for work, education, mental and physical health as well as engagement with their local community.
We are one of the largest community housing providers in Australia, with operations in Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania, New South Wales and Western Australia.
Australia’s private rental market presents challenges for a significant portion of the community. In particular, people on low incomes and those living with a disability.
It is our vision that all people are affordably housed in neighbourhoods that support life opportunities.
It is our mission to provide affordable homes across Australia, working with partners to create resilient and inclusive neighbourhoods.
