With over 400 staff working across 14 locations in metropolitan Melbourne, we combine direct action with advocacy, research, and innovation to drive widespread change.
Elizabeth Street Common Ground (ESCG) is delivered in collaboration between Launch Housing and Unison. ESCG was the first supportive housing project of its kind in Victoria, and the second in Australia.
ESCG is based on the Common Ground model of supportive housing which began in New York City over 20 years ago. The model is centred on strengthening individuals and communities by developing sustainable and affordable housing. Common Ground brings people together in a managed building, which includes spaces for community engagement, living skills capacity building, and leisure and recreation. There are dedicated health spaces for GP, nursing and massage therapy services, as well as for support staff to undertake work with their clients. 24 hour concierge services are also provided and this is augmented during evenings and weekends with out-of-hours worker support.
