Unity Housing was established in 2008 to provide safe, affordable and sustainable housing to people on low incomes. Unity was formed with the transfer of assets from several well-established housing organisations and is currently the largest single provider of affordable and community housing in South Australia.
Our primary aim is to provide affordable and sustainable housing for vulnerable people and people on low incomes, particularly those living with a disability or experiencing and at risk of homelessness.
This is achieved through the provision of around 3,000 units of accommodation that house more than 5,000 people on low to moderate income per annum. With a turnover of more than $25 million per annum, we manage an asset base valued at more than $800 million with staff of more than 90 operating out of six offices across the Adelaide metropolitan area and an office in the mid-north and south-east region.
Our ongoing commitment to continuous improvement, evidence-based practice and innovation in service delivery has reinforced our long standing reputation as a leader in the social and affordable housing sector.
As one of a select number of community housing providers that has achieved Tier 1 status under the National Regulatory System, we aim to rapidly increase the scale and breadth of our housing portfolio so that we can continue to achieve our vision of creating opportunities for people to live in affordable and sustainable housing of their choice.
We seek to build balanced and functional communities through a diverse housing portfolio of low income, affordable and high needs housing. We deliver a continuum of housing options including: a boarding house program, a community housing program and an affordable housing program. These programs have distinct asset management requirements that need to be addressed.
