Your Donation Can Change a Life
Housing is a fundamental need of all human beings. For many low-income families and individuals in NSW, the achievement of secure, affordable housing is an overwhelming challenge. By 2016, the number of people on social housing waiting lists will have risen to 115,000. Common Equity assists people who are social housing eligible and seeking housing.
Housing is the platform on which people base all the other parts of their lives.
Imagine what your life would be like if you couldn’t guarantee a roof over your head.
Without stable and affordable housing, it is a daily challenge for people to ensure the safety and well-being of their children, maintain employment, undertake study for jobs, maintain cohesive family life and plan for anything.
Imagine the heartache for parents who cannot afford to provide even basic accommodation for their children.
We work with people from all backgrounds and needs who are on a low income and are seeking secure, affordable housing. Among them are children, older people, struggling single parent families, women escaping domestic violence and people with a disability. For many people, the absence of housing they can afford is often a slippery slope to homelessness. Providing a secure place to live ensures that families, young singles and older people don’t find themselves without anywhere to live.
We want them to have the chance to live in secure, low-cost accommodation.
We want to build at least another twenty-five properties in the next 8 years. This will cost us $7million.

Occasionally we may be able to achieve a contributing grant from government but funds of this nature are not assured. Generally, new dwellings are funded from our own reserves and borrowings.
Small amounts of money can make a tremendous difference. Relatively low amounts of capital give us the capacity to generate borrowings to meet the gap.
That’s why every dollar counts.
Please help us get more people like Mary and Lee into secure, affordable housing.
100% of your donation goes to securing housing for those on our waiting list.
