“Property has its duties as well as its rights” The central tenet of the Housing Association is the belief that vulnerable people can live full lives with support; and that an affordable home is a platform to recovery. Everyone has the right to:
- have a home of one’s own
- to live in an inclusive community
- to live as independently as possible
- to reach their full potential
The best practice model for approved housing bodies is to separate the provision of housing from the provision of support.
In order to qualify for accommodation in a Saint John of God Housing Association property, all applicants for housing must be in receipt of a support / care package.
Most of our tenants receive a support / care package from a sister company, the Saint John of God Community Services clg (Community Services), which cares for individuals with intellectual disability and individuals with mental health issues.
