The Housing Hub

The Housing Hub is a new way for people with disability to find suitable housing. Advertising vacancies from a range of housing providers, The Housing Hub also hosts a library of useful information about housing options and planning your move.

At the moment, The Housing Hub lists vacancies from housing providers in New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia. Vacancies may include existing SDA properties, new SDA builds, non-SDA supported accommodation, private rental, and properties for sale. The range of vacancies will continue to grow as the website develops.

Housing providers (including developers of Specialist Disability Accommodation) can advertise their properties for free until the end of 2018 by filling out the registration form.

The project

The Housing Hub was funded by the Department of Social Services (DSS) Sector Development Fund as a pilot project in 2017, and in the first year has expanded from a few small regions to include housing located in many states across Australia. It is essential to try and capture the sort of accommodation people are seeking, so that information about housing demand can be provided to government and private developers,  leading to more accessible housing builds.We would like to hear from you! Tell us about your experiences in searching for housing, and what you think of The Housing Hub by contacting us.

Summer Foundation

The Housing Hub is auspiced by the Summer Foundation. The Summer Foundation’s mission is to resolve the issue of young people living in aged care. Access to housing is a critical enabler for people with disability to live the life they want in the community, and to help avoid inappropriate entry into aged care. The Summer Foundation’s approach is to share what we learn from this platform with other providers and individuals, and welcome questions and comments on the Housing Hub.
