What is accessible and inclusive housing?

Accessible and inclusive housing means homes that are built for everyone, including homes that are affordable for people on low incomes and people who have a disability or other complex needs. We lend to community housing providers to help them build affordable and social housing and specialist disability accommodation providers.

Bank Australia's policy

 Everyone deserves to live in a home that helps them live the life they want to lead.

By helping providers to build homes for people who find it hard to access affordable or appropriate housing, we stay true to our mission to make our society more equitable. For this reason, we support this sector to increase the number of Australians who can access stable, safe and affordable housing no matter their situation.
