The collective purchase and management of co-operative housing flourished over the past 30 years. This community-focused form of secure and affordable housing has floundered in recent times, however, particularly with the withdrawal of government support for public housing co-operatives.
Who we are today has been significantly influenced by the Members, Trustees and/or Directors of the organisations who have transferred their homes to Westside in recent history. With the addition of new homes from housing co-operatives and benevolent organisations, our tenant community has spread far across the metropolitan area in both the north and the south, and up to the Adelaide Hills. Westside would like to acknowledge the long and proud history of these organisations, and thank them for trusting us with their homes.
