Housing Options

Unity Housing provides safe, secure and sustainable homes for South Australians with diverse needs including those on low to moderate incomes; at risk of or experiencing homelessness; and/or living with disability – all of whom may have difficulty obtaining or maintaining housing in the public or private market.

We have a range of housing options including general community housing; affordable housing; boarding houses; a housing program for people accessing mental health support (HASP); gender-specific housing comprising women-only and men-only units and rooms; and both group homes and independent housing for people living with disability.

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA)

Unity Housing has a long and successful history of managing homes for people with high and complex support and housing needs.

Unity Housing manages the tenancy of more than 300 disability properties in the Adelaide metropolitan area and rural regions, delivering high-quality disability accommodation services.

We are committed to the development of new specialist disability accommodation to provide broader housing options for people living with disability.

Through design, specification and materials selection, we aim to exceed best practice for accessibility and environmentally sustainable development with recently-completed new builds constructed to Livable Design Standards Gold or Silver Level, and future new builds to be constructed to a minimum of SDA Improved Liveability.
