Access Housing is one of Western Australia’s leading not-for-profit providers of Community Housing.
We proudly manage, purchase and develop secure, sustainable and affordable homes for some of WA’s most financially and socially vulnerable people including seniors, people living with a disability or severe and persistent mental health challenge, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, families and singles.
With more than 1,800 homes under management across the Perth, Peel and South West regions, we are one of WA’s largest non-government social and
affordable housing providers.
Access Housing works closely with a range of specialist support providers and government agencies operating in the disability, aged care, mental health, homeless, youth housing, domestic violence and substance addiction
sectors to further assist our tenants beyond our primary role as landlord. We encourage tenants to engage with appropriate support services to assist them in the ongoing stability and sustainability of their tenancy.
The company’s not-for-profit status allows us to reinvest earnings generated through our core business into funding engagement and capacity building
programs that aim to improve tenant participation, wellbeing and financial resilience. It also allows us to reinvest profits into maintaining and growing our property portfolio which, in turn, enhances our capacity to facilitate pathways into and out of the social housing system for current and prospective tenants.
On 1 July 2020, Access Housing joined forces with Melbourne-based Housing Choices Australia and merged to become one of Australia’s largest Community Housing Providers. With Access Housing joining the Housing Choices Australia Group of Companies, the merged entity is now responsible for the management of nearly 7,000 social and affordable homes across Western Australia, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania and New South Wales, with assets valued in excess of $900 million and with annual revenue of nearly $70 million.
