Safe and secure boarding houses

Our boarding houses provide an entry point for highly vulnerable people into low-cost, safe and secure accommodation


Community housing

Community housing provides longer term rental homes for people who generally require support and are living on very low incomes.


Affordable Housing

Affordable housing offers rental accommodation for people on low to moderate incomes who may find it difficult to afford housing in the private rental market.


We believe everyone has the right to live in a home they can afford in a place they choose.

Unity provides safe, secure and sustainable accommodation for people on low incomes.

This ranges from people who simply need affordable housing to people who are vulnerable and may be at risk of or experiencing homelessness and people living with a disability.
