Sustain Community Housing is a social enterprise that brings a new approach to social and affordable housing. Sustain’s vision is to be innovative in providing sustainable community and affordable housing throughout New South Wales making a positive difference to people’s lives. In 2015, Social Ventures Australia, Social Enterprise Finance Australia and private investors contributed $2.1 million towards Sustain’s first project – a redevelopment of 2,400 square metres of land in Colyton, New South Wales. The land was developed into six dwellings, with four sold to private buyers off the plan, and two to be used for social housing purposes. The profits from the initiative will be used for future developments with the same structure, with the goal to reduce the current ten-year waiting list for social housing.
