Communities that thrive
Unison is a not-for-profit organisation that provides a range of services to foster strong communities. We develop, own and manage social, transitional and affordable housing; and we provide commercial property management, owners corporate management, and cleaning and ground services.
The people Unison provides housing and property services to come from many different walks of life, but they all want to live in a safe, welcoming and thriving community. They want to feel supported and connected to their community, and be proud of where they live.
In addition, we provide homelessness services in Melbourne's West. We connect people to safe and affordable short and medium-term accommodation combined with support to address any issues that may have contributed to their tenuous housing situation. We also help people re-establish and maintain a secure home in the private rental market.
We believe that a thriving community needs a range of housing options to suit different people’s circumstances and incomes. We manage many different types of housing in Victoria and in Adelaide, from single dwellings to multi-storey towers, from transitional housing to private rental providing different housing pathways to the community.
As a not-for-profit organisation, we reinvest our operating surplus back into our services, our properties and our communities. Importantly, this allows us to invest in the development of much needed affordable housing. It makes good social sense.
Unison is about more than housing, we are about communities that thrive.
