Social Housing

Harold Hawthorne Community Centre was successful in its tender submission for the Housing Authority to develop four aged-person dwellings on the Centre’s vacant land, as part of the Social Housing Investment Package (SHIP). The State Government initiative aims to reduce the number of seniors on the priority wait list by partnering with not-for-profit organisations in the provision of affordable housing.

Harold Hawthorne Community Centre management and staff are proud to have been successful in joining the initiative.  Accessible design guidelines were adopted to allow for ageing in place.  The four brand new units were completed in June 2017 and handover took place on 3rd July 2017.  They are now providing affordable housing to benefit those most in need within our community.

Eligibility for this accommodation is governed by our agreement with the Department of Housing in accordance with the Community Housing Income and Assets Limits Policy.  Applicants must be registered on the Housing Authority’s priority wait list.

Could one of our affordable housing options become your ideal new home?
