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.

scottmorrisonStatement issued by Scott Morrison on his appointment on 21 December 2014 as Minister for Social Services:

Serving in the Cabinet is a great privilege. We do so at the request of the Prime Minister in whatever role he asks us to, in serviceof the Australian people. Our responsibility as Ministers is to get the job done.
The Australian people can expect me to apply the same energy, commitment and leadership in this new role as I have in Immigration and Border Protection. Stopping the boats has saved lives and restored public confidence in our borders and our immigration programme. People waiting in desperate situations offshore are no longer having their places taken by those illegally entering Australia on boats and we have successfully passed legislation that will see Labor's legacy caseload of 30,000 people processed and all children out of detention in Australia.

Going forward the Australian Border Force and our work in the region will ensure Australia is better protected against all border threats,including people smuggling.It has been a pleasure to serve with all the men and women who have made these achievements possible and to do what so many said could not be done. I will now turn my attention to our welfare system and working to ensure the integrity, dignity and sustainability of our safety net. But the best social service we can afford any Australian to help them deal with the costs of living, is a job. Getting as many Australians as are able off welfare and into work will be one of my core goals.
