Housing Services

Junction Australia provides social and affordable housing across a number of urban and regional areas in South Australia. As well as providing housing, Junction Australia manages tenancies and properties as a landlord.

All of our housing aims to provide rental accommodation for people who may find it difficult to access housing in the private market. The different housing types we have reflect the various additional needs that applicants for our housing may have.

In the broadest sense, Junction Australia manages two groups of housing options:

  • Affordable Housing: Houses that are allocated to low or moderate income persons or people with particular needs or barriers toward long term sustainable housing, and rent is based on a percentage of market rental prices.
  • Social Housing: Houses that are reserved for low or moderate income persons or people with particular needs or barriers toward long term sustainable housing, and rent is based on a percentage of income received. Some waiting lists and referrals for this housing group are not managed by Junction Australia, although Junction Australia may consult with other organisations before allocation decisions are made (i.e. decisions about who will receive an offer of housing).

Eligibility criteria for each of our housing options is different. Some of the eligibility requirements depend on:

  • Who owns the property (noting that Junction Australia does not own all of the rental properties it manages as landlord).
  • The support-based reservation that applies to a particular house. Some of the houses managed by Junction Australia can only be occupied by people with special support needs who are supported by particular organisations.
