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.

LAUDATO2Pope Francis has released his first encyclical letter - Laudato Si - on Care for Our Common Home. it is a moral case for addressing climate change. Encyclicals are authoritative statements.

Chapter One What is happening to our common home considers pollution and climate change, the issue of water, the loss of biodiversity and decline in the quality of human life and the breakdown of society.

The encyclical also addresses global inequality - about little awareness of the excluded who are the majority of the planent's population. It is also noted that professionals, opinion makers, communications media and centres of power are located in affluent urban areas far removed from the poor. It is noted that inequality affects not only individuals but entire countries.
