Homes for Homes is an independent, not-for-profit organisation established by Australia’s largest and most successful social enterprise, The Big Issue.

A group of community leaders, including The Big Issue CEO, identified a mechanism applied by a large developer to raise recurring funding from sale and resale of its own properties. Beyond the funds raised, the initiative provided a way for the community to engage with and be a part of the solution to the shortage of social and affordable housing.

Inspired, The Big Issue set about tailoring the initiative to allow the entire community to link arms on scale. Homes for Homes is the result of more than six years of development, planning, consultation and independent reviews (including government treasuries and housing departments) to create a tailored solution that is ‘Made for Australia’.
