Active operates across Victoria and was formed in 1996 to provide housing to people with disabilities as well as to be a housing partner for community support organisations. Active also undertakes our own development projects to expand the accommodation we can provide to our client group.

Originally established to provide community housing solely for people with disabilities, Active has expanded its operations to include other disadvantaged groups and those on a low income. We also provide tenancy and property management services to a range government and non government agencies that provide support and training services people with disabilities.

Active is governed by a voluntary board of directors with extensive community sector knowledge, project development, legal and financial skills. Any surplus made by Active is reinvested in the organisation to achieve our vision to expand the stock of secure affordable housing which we can offer to people with disabilities and others.

The Active board and staff team are passionate about providing affordable and appropriate housing to people with a disability with the help of our community partners providing secure long term tenancies for our clients. Working in partnership with support and transitional agencies, accommodation seekers, and property owners and operators, Active provides and manages long term housing options. 

Its dedicated staff ensures that Active clients are able to choose and access housing options that best match their needs and enhance their full participation in the community.

“This is a new service delivering in home automation and communications, systems and tele health monitoring and support options builds on our 20-year mission to provide high quality housing and services to support people with disabilities to live independently in local communities.”
