Social Housing Innovations Project (SHIP)
The Social Housing Innovations Project (SHIP) is a partnership project with the State Government that provides a long-term housing solution for people on low incomes.
11 houses and 23 units have been built in Ballarat, Wendouree, Bacchus Marsh and Trentham.
The SHIP Project is a partnership with the State Government.
UnitingCare Ballarat contributed over $1million to the SHIP project. The houses and units are modern and spacious with landscaping and carports. Our tenants find them a pleasure to live in.
The project is an exciting venture and involves the collaboration of the Uniting Church with some of the land; the Department of Human Services for major funding; and UnitingCare for funding, construction and management of the properties and tenancies. The project will assist with the increasing struggle for low-income earners to find afforable housing within our region.
