Change In How We Do Business
Due to COVID-19 Inner East Social Housing Group Ltd office doors are closed to visitors but we are still operating. Please continue to use your existing Inner East Social Housing Group contact details between 10am – 4pm so that we can assist with your call. Alternatively email
Please let us know if you are in self-isolation, or have tested positive to COVID-19, or are in the process of being tested for the virus so that we can take the necessary precautions to protect our staff, other tenants and contractors. We have asked our regular tradespeople to do the same.
For everyone’s safety, routine property inspections are on hold for the time being and we will prioritise the most urgent maintenance.
Unfortunately, that may mean unavoidable delays in attending to non-urgent maintenance. Thank you for your patience.
When undertaking maintenance at properties, our tradespeople and contractors are taking the necessary precautions to protect everyone’s safety, including the use of personal protective equipment.

Our Operating Environment
Inner East Social Housing Group supports the belief that access to affordable, safe and secure housing is a key component of every individuals health and wellbeing.
The disappearance of rooming house stock, the increased cost of providing replacement accommodation and the complexity of disadvantage suffered by our target group are the main environmental factors impacting on the social housing sector.
Over the past 2 decades many private rooming house beds have disappeared from across the state.
There has been a marked increase in Land, building and rental costs.
Our clients present with disadvantages beyond the need for affordable accommodation, and we are dependent on the quality of advice provided by referring agencies, and the quality of their support, to maintain our tenancies.
