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.

AR2011The Registrar of Housing Agencies, Mr. Anthony Hardy, has written to SEHC Chairperson, Shirley Faram, praising the 2010-2011 Annual Report. In his letter of 24 February 2012, Mr. Hardy said: "I am pleased to acknowledge that SouthEast Housing Co-operative's 2010-2011 annual report was outstanding. It was distinctive, well laid out and contained sufficient organisational information to allow a good understanding of the co-ops work. It was also good to see recognition for staff and members achievements."

Mr. Hardy's letter was followed up by a brief visit to a SEHC board meeting on 24 February 2012 by Jane Gilbert, Acting Manager, Registration and  Christine Whitton, Lead Regulator SEHC from the Housing Registrar. Jane Gilbert praised the SEHC Annual Report 2010-2011 as  well put together, really good, a marketing tool, open about the Housing Registrar intervention and that a lot of effort had been put into producing the report.
