A message from Chris Glennen, Active CEO

I hope everyone has had a good break and some down time over the Summer holidays. We are starting an exciting new year at Active with a lot of projects underway to help us further our mission to make safe, affordable long-term housing available for people with disabilities. I am pleased to share their progress with you.

Assistive Housing Hub coming in mid- March

We have settled into our new office location here in Preston. Our next priority is to open our Assistive Housing Hub in partnership with Haven; Home, Safe.

The Hub will showcase an array of accommodation products, services and innovations that can be of assistance to people living with disability or aging in place to:

  • Live more independently;
  • Have a more dignified home environment;
  • Provide improved security; and
  • Off-set support provision requirements.

Through the Hub, we will assist more people with disabilities to have the home they need to live independently in the community.

Working with Summer Housing

Active works with community housing and disability support agencies to deliver housing for people with disability across Victoria. We are very pleased to now be working with Summer Housing and have recently commenced as Summer’s property and tenancy manager at their new development in Fairfield.

We really enjoy this work as we can be part of the team supporting people with significant disabilities to move into their brand-new homes provided by Summer Housing.
