To help address this crisis, the Barnett Foundation has created a new housing model that provides affordable home ownership to social housing tenants.
We are inspired by the philanthropic endeavours of Frederick Oswald Barnett, who over a century ago highlighted the need for public housing that led to the creation of the Victorian Housing Commission.
We collaborate with Government, Land Owners and Charitable Organisations to create housing solutions that provide assisted ownership to the people who need it most. Simply put, we build well designed apartments that become homes for the people exiting social housing, which in turn frees up much needed social housing.
The Barnett Foundation has been granted Public Benevolent Institution status by the Australian Charities and Not-for profits Commission and Deductible Gift Recipient and Income Tax Relief status by the Australian Taxation Office.
