SouthEast is a non-trading cooperative and the largest Rental Housing Cooperative in Victoria. Our mission is to provide affordable, secure, financially, and environmentally sustainable housing for people on low incomes, who are committed to cooperative democracy and engagement.
SouthEast is governed by a Board of Directors elected democratically by members of the Cooperative, thus ensuring member/tenant control of the operation of the service, and a better understanding of tenant/members’ needs.
At SouthEast we believe that accessible, affordable and appropriate housing is not only important for the safety and security of individuals and families, it also forms part of the foundation on which we build strong sustainable communities. It is only with the experience of stable housing that people are able to put down roots in the local community, feel included, and be motivated to contribute to the society around them.
