Communities that thrive

Unison was formed as the result of a merger between Yarra Community Housing and Urban Communities Limited and now manages more than 2500 tenancies.

We believe that affordable housing is the foundation on which to build a life of value, but that a good life takes more than just housing. A good life takes place in a community.

Unison provides a diverse range of housing services across Victoria and in Adelaide, including social housing, affordable housing, private rental, transitional housing and owners corporation services. We work to reduce disadvantage and social exclusion for people who have previously been homeless, by helping to create communities around them. Unison also assists over 3000 people each year who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
