In the heart of Geelong, two new housing units are set to redefine the concept of home. Offering flexible design, energy efficiency, and modern double-storey layouts, these three-bedroom residences are tailored for families in need. Supported by the Homes Victoria initiative as part of the monumental $5.3 billion Big Housing Build, these properties represent a significant step forward in providing secure and affordable co-operative rental housing.

Co-operative housing is more than secure, affordable housing. Rental housing co-operatives provide a community-led form of social housing where the housing is run by the people who live in it, allowing people to “rent like they own”.

As Liz Thomas, Managing Director of CEHL, aptly puts it, “It’s not just about housing; it’s about getting people housed and keeping them housed in a dignified way for life.”

These new homes in Geelong are more than just buildings – they are a testament to the power of community and the promise of a stable, dignified life for all.
