Transitional and long-term housing
In partnership with the Queensland Government, Bric provides both transitional and long-term housing under a range of programs. These include:
Community Managed Studio Units
This is boarding house/studio unit accommodation for tenants in higher density settings. Most tenants are housed on transitional basis, with a view to moving to a long-term option, either in the private rental or in social housing.
Private Headleasing (including the Community Rent Scheme)
This delivers housing as a transitional step to longer term social or private market housing. Property is sourced from the private rental market - with Bric becoming the tenant and sub-leasing to social housing tenants.
Same House Different Landlord
The Same House Different Landlord program allows people to lease properties under a social housing arrangement, with a view to progressing to public housing without having to move to another property.
Long Term Housing
Under the LTHP, registered providers supply appropriate and affordable community-managed housing for people who have a long-term need for social housing. Many of Bric's long-term tenants have lived in their homes for 5 years or more.
Affordable Housing provides accommodation at a rate less than the equivalent private rental market for similar accommodation.
Supported Housing Program
The Supported Housing Program delivers accommodation to a number of tenancies in the Redcliffe Region. Bric provides the property and tenancy management, with Open Minds providing on-site support to tenants with mental health or other support needs.
This provides temporary supported accommodation in our Spring Hill boarding house, with 24/7 onsite support from Mission Australia. Referrals are via a homelessness service eg HART 4000 or Micah.
