Who we are

Centacare Evolve Housing owns or manages approximately 1,500 affordable or social housing properties and provides tenancy support to over 3,000 Tasmanians across the state.

As a participant in the Better Housing Futures program, Centacare Evolve Housing has a strong working partnership with Housing Tasmania and the State Government. Through this, we own or manage about 1,100 Social Housing properties, mostly located in the Brighton area. Social Housing rent is calculated as either 25% of assessable household income plus Commonwealth Rent Assistance, or assessed market rent – whichever is lower.

We also actively support a number of government initiatives that prioritise housing for people experiencing particular housing barriers (for example, family violence or people exiting the prison system) through support of the government’s Rapid Rehousing Program and other initiatives.

Centacare Evolve Housing’s extensive building program will result in over 400 new homes for Tasmanian families in coming years, and our maintenance team are continually overseeing major upgrades and refurbishments to existing homes. By increasing both the quality and supply of available housing options, our property development work is having a positive impact on the lives of many Tasmanians.

Despite our big housing numbers, we believe our business is about much more than managing and building properties. So, as well as providing a comprehensive and responsive tenancy management service, we have a strong social commitment to enhancing the wellbeing of our tenants and the communities in which we work. We are a major supporter of CatholicCare’s Social Impact Program and we facilitate a Community Development and Reference Group and a Tenant Advisory Group - both of which help direct and implement our many community initiatives. We partner with residents, councils and other organisations to run community programs and hold community events. Much of our work is guided by our award winning Master Plan (prepared by Holmes Dyer Planners) which ensures our significant capital investment is applied to best effect.

Our Community Housing Services team is based at our office in Bridgewater where it provides best possible access to the large number of tenants we have in the area. Our tenancy, maintenance, and community development teams are regularly out and about in the local area and across the state ensuring we continue to support our tenants, partner with our communities, and increase the availability of affordable housing options for Tasmanians.
