Providing a place to call ‘home’
No matter what type of housing we provide, our job doesn’t end with securing a property; in fact that’s just the beginning.
We help support our tenants’ long-term well-being by:
- facilitating programs that help build a sense of belonging (e.g. social events)
- providing opportunities for tenants to get to know each other and get involved in their community (e.g. community gardening)
- dedicating staff to help people with more complex needs
- providing extra resources via our wide partner network of other service providers
- encouraging them to have their say and influence decision-making on tenant-related issues by joining our Tenant Advisory Group or attending block meetings
- offering education scholarships to help with the cost of learning or special interests
- becoming involved in our arts and creative projects
- providing training and employment opportunities.
Social Housing is available to people on a very low to low income.
Link Housing manages properties on behalf of the NSW Government, local councils, private landlords and agents. We also own properties that we lease for Social Housing across metro areas in NSW.
Affordable Housing is accessible to people whose household income (low to moderate) is not high enough to cover market rental prices in the area where they live or work.
Affordable Housing properties are usually priced around 20 per cent below the market rental price to allow people a chance to better meet basic living costs.
As a not-for-profit licensed real estate agency, Link Housing manages rental housing on behalf of private developers, investors, local councils and charities.

Housing Assistance is available to people who need temporary crisis accommodation in NSW.
Link Housing can help locate emergency housing or provide urgent rental assistance to those who are facing:
- Homelessness or impending homelessness
We can provide expert advice on (and referrals to) Specialist Homelessness Services, as well as work with other organisations to find temporary homes.
- Domestic and family violence
We provide housing and work with other services to support people to find safe accommodation, including short and medium-term housing.
- Any other crisis and are in need of rental assistance
We can help by paying urgent rental costs or working with real estate agents to help find suitable housing to those who are struggling to find (or hold onto) a rental home. This might be because they are on a waiting list for Affordable Housing or Social Housing, or for any other reason.
