Our housing program provides a range of safe, secure and affordable accommodation to those from the Ballarat district Aboriginal community.

Services

Rental Accommodation Program

The purpose of this program is to provide Aboriginal people with low cost rental housing within the Ballarat district and surrounding areas.

A house provides much more than shelter and BADAC recognises that without adequate housing, general health and emotional wellbeing is at higher risk; relationships and other social issues are more difficult to manage; and people are unable to make the most of the education and employment opportunities that will benefit them and their families.

BADAC supports home ownership and sees this as being a concrete start in raising the quality of life and living standards of its members. Eligible members are encouraged to seek finance assistance through IBA (Indigenous Business Australia) or other sources to secure the ownership of their rental property with BADAC.

If you are interested to apply for BADAC Housing, please complete the BADAC Housing Application form and submit to Main Reception at the Co-operative (Market St).

Emergency Accommodation

We recognise that sometimes clients may have urgent or complex needs which they are unable to resolve themselves.

The Housing Program will make every reasonable endeavour to interview all clients with indicators of complex or urgent needs and may consider them for emergency temporary accommodation or priority assistance.

The intention is to assist people in the community who are facing hardship due to a crisis or emergency, which has made them temporarily homeless.

If you require assistance with emergency/ short-term accommodation, please contact the Co-operative and ask for our Housing Officer.
