Welcome aboard, Housing Hub

An Early Bird exhibitor for the Brisbane Disability Connection Expo 2023, Housing Hub is an online community of people with Disability and Housing providers working together to create accessible housing options.

The Housing Hub is a way for people with disabilities to find suitable housing. Advertising properties from a range of housing providers, the Housing Hub also hosts a library of useful information about housing options and planning your move.

The Housing Hub covers all of Australia. Properties listed by housing providers may include existing Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA), new SDA builds, non-SDA supported accommodation, private rental and properties for sale. Properties are listed on the Housing Hub every week.

The Housing Hub was created by the Summer Foundation as a pilot project in 2017 with funding from the Department of Social Services (DSS) Sector Development Fund. In its first year, the Housing Hub expanded from a few small regions to include housing located in many states across Australia.

As well as connecting housing seekers with suitable housing, the Housing Hub plays an essential role in capturing the sorts of housing people are seeking, so that information about housing demand can be provided to government and developers, leading to more accessible housing builds.

Principles that guide their work, behaviour and decisions at Housing Hub are:

  • People with disability are at the centre of everything we do.
  • We seek social change by leading in our sector to build sustainable and innovative products that facilitate people with disability choosing where, how, and who to live with.
  • We build the confidence of the housing sector through collaboration, capacity building and tenancy solutions.
    Our work is aligned to our evidence base and approach.
  • Our team has courage and approaches problems with curiosity to achieve our vision.
