Our 5 guiding principles
We will partner with local communities and Uniting Church congregations to explore community need, co-create housing options and deliver local housing investments together.
We put our consumers at the centre of our work, delivering housing where we can offer integrated service delivery to residents. This is a particular strength in many of the regional areas where we operate.
We develop affordable housing projects that are socially, financially and environmentally sustainable.
Decisions about where to operate are based on where we can provide a range of services, where there is demonstrable need and a lack of alternatives. Our developments must be economically feasible and offer competitive advantage.
Housing investments we make will all be considered and evaluated on a “stand-alone” basis, without ongoing cross subsidisation from other projects or reserves.
