Four new one-bedroom properties in Shepparton are now completed, as part of our $2.7 million-dollar singles project with the Peter & Lyndy White foundation, which will deliver a total of 11 affordable one-bedroom homes in Shepparton, Wangaratta and Seymour by the end of 2020. Eight one-bedroom properties have been completed so far, with the remaining three currently under construction.
One-bedroom units help address a shortfall in affordable and appropriate housing for single people. Last financial year, half of the 3,331 people we supported who were homeless or at risk of homelessness were single people, on low incomes.
Sessions Builders constructed the Shepparton units.
"Sessions Builders and its employees have been able to gather a further understanding of the needs of people who require social housing, and the circumstances in which they find themselves.
We pride ourselves in delivering quality workmanship, and this has presented a special opportunity in designing homes to suit specific blocks, as well as specific housing needs.
The contribution we are making to our local community and to reducing homelessness here in Shepparton is something that we have taken great pride in."- Tim Sessions – Director Sessions Builders
"I applied for 48 properties before I went to BeyondHousing for help. I can’t believe I’m about to be in a brand-new home of my own"- Toni, New Tenant.
