What We Do

Purpose

We collaboratively shape great places through sustainable, safe and affordable housing and connect people to opportunity to improve quality of life.

Vision

A leading business, in a thriving community housing industry, providing great places for everyone.

Our Strategic Plan

At SGCH, we strive to deliver excellence through innovative approaches to the products and services we provide.  We deliver on our vision by providing two main housing products:

  • Social Housing – Secure, long-term housing for people on very low to moderate incomes
  • Affordable Housing – Subsidised rental accommodation for people working in key services on low to moderate incomes

Our approach

We strongly believe that it is only when individuals have opportunities to settle and create a home, that they can then think about other parts of their lives and can access other services and opportunities that will help them attain their aspirations.

As a result, in addition to our core housing services, we provide a range of initiatives to improve the lives of tenants such as training, education, employment and community engagement opportunities. These initiatives are all designed to address social exclusion and create pathways out of poverty and the cycle of disadvantage.

For more information about these initiatives, please refer to our ‘Housing Plus’ products, or read about community engagement opportunities.

We offer services that improve the wellbeing of our tenants.
