Living Options

How can we help?

UnitingSA Housing is all about providing affordable rental options for those who need it most.

We understand that housing is about more than shelter. It’s the platform on which we build strong communities and support people to participate and flourish.

We provide affordable housing to those on low to moderate incomes who are having difficulty securing housing in the private rental market. We have a range of housing options, from units to free-standing homes, and manage tenancies and properties as a landlord.

While we provide housing across a number of areas in metropolitan Adelaide, most of our housing options are located in the northern and western suburbs.

Submit the completed form to either:

If you need help or have questions about this registration form, please contact Housing SA on 131 299 or visit a Housing SA office.
