After many happy years in Yarraville, Active Community Housing Ltd is on the move to Preston. This move is very much in line with Active’s development from a specialist disability housing company to one that provides a range of accommodation related services to people with disabilities and their families across Victoria.
Our new offices are located on Level 1 / 52-56 Mary St Preston. Our phone number 9314 8555 and email firstname.lastname@example.org remains the same. Our new offices will provide more professional presentation and amenity for our tenants, staff, trades, contractors and many others who visit our offices.
We will be co- located with Haven; Home, Safe (HHS). Active and Haven agreed an MOU in late 2016 to use our respective strengths to provide improved housing for Victorians who require social housing, including people with disabilities who require support to live in the community.
HHS with its deep homelessness, long – term affordable housing and development capacity and Active with our specialist disability knowledge, make a strong team. We are two not for profit community housing organisations cooperating to increase the quality and quantity of housing and services we can provide.
We are also working together to develop an Assistive Housing Hub at our offices in Preston. Our aim is for the Hub to provide a display and consultancy unit for assistive technology, modifications and care monitoring and support technology. We hope to open the Hub by early 2019.
The Hub will build on Active’s state wide ‘Better Homes Better Lives” Home Modifications service which currently operates across Victoria allowing people with disability and aging to live comfortably and independently in their homes across Victoria.
