Co-operation Housing

Building strong communities through co-operative living


Your donation helps provide housing to those in need.  

Housing is a fundamental need of all human beings. Housing is the platform on which people base all the other parts of their lives. Imagine what your life would be like if you couldn’t guarantee a roof over your head. Without stable and affordable housing, it is a daily challenge for people to ensure the safety and well-being of their children, maintain employment, undertake study for jobs, maintain cohesive family life and plan for anything. Imagine the heartache for parents who cannot afford to provide even basic accommodation for their children.

For many low-income families and individuals in WA, the achievement of secure, affordable housing is an overwhelming challenge. The number of people on social housing waiting lists continues to rise. Co-operation Housing assists people who are social housing eligible and seeking housing; we provide more than just housing.  

Your donation can change a life, and help build strong communities through co-operative living. 

Co-operation Housing specialises in the co-operative model; a model that provides more than just housing and is known for creating additional benefits including social capital, housing quality and stability, health & wellbeing, skills acquisition, reduced costs and broader economic and development outcomes.  

We work with people from all backgrounds and needs who are on a low income and are seeking secure, affordable housing. Among them are children, older people, struggling single-parent families, women escaping domestic violence and people with a disability. For many people, the absence of housing they can afford is often a slippery slope to homelessness. Providing a secure place to live ensures that families, young singles and older people don’t find themselves without anywhere to live.

We want to build new housing co-ops providing more people with the chance to live in secure, low-cost accommodation, and provide the opportunity to live their best lives.

Occasionally we may be able to achieve a contributing grant from government but funds of this nature are not assured. Generally, new dwellings are funded from our own reserves and borrowings.

Small amounts of money can make a tremendous difference. Every dollar counts.

Please help us get more people into secure, affordable housing.

100% of your donation goes to securing housing for those in need.

Your donation will be greatly appreciated and provides a long-lasting ‘bricks and mortar ‘ contribution to the welfare of struggling Australians who need a hand.

Donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible and you can donate securely online.
