Our mission is to provide affordable, secure, financially and environmentally sustainable housing for people on low incomes, primarily in the South and East of Melbourne who are committed to cooperative democracy and engagement.


The services provided by SouthEast define its reality as a housing co-op. SouthEast commits to ensuring its long term capacity to continuous improvement of all services.


Members own and control their co-op and this is the essential characteristic of SouthEast. The board represents the members best through its obligation to be representative, accountable and transparent.


SouthEast is committed to the values of cooperation, voluntary membership, democratic control, autonomy & independence, co-op education and cooperation between co-ops.

humankindindexLast year, Oxfam Scotland came up with the Oxfam Humankind Index, a new way of measuring what makes a good life. The aim of the index is to assess Scotland’s prosperity through a holistic and more representative measure of progress, that goes beyond the dominant economic model, which relies on Gross Domestic Product as the main indicator. So Oxfam Scotland set off to find out what things really matter to the people of Scotland. This might include their social relations, their health and skills, their physical environment and natural context, and their financial assets.

This is the second report of the Oxfam Humankind Index for Scotland, updating the first results published in April 2012. While the Index shows a marginal overall increase on last year’s report, our impression is one of a society where prosperity is broadly flat. The report shows that deprived communities continue to lag behind the rest of Scotland, although the gap has narrowed slightly from 11% to 10%.
