WPI works with partners in the private, public and non-government sectors to develop innovative ways of improving access to long-term, affordable housing for women. It is our goal to increase our housing stock by continuing to build good quality, safe and secure homes that can be rented affordably by women with low to medium incomes.

We source investment from the private, public, philanthropic and community sectors and leverage this investment to make the best use of limited resources in delivering agreed outcomes.

In 2018, WPI owns and manages a total of 83 homes and houses over 200 women and children. The net worth of our properties is in excess of 25 million.

As well as managing entire projects, from sourcing funding and land to long-term tenancy and property management, WPI has a dedicated Project and Development Manager who provides expertise across planning, design and construction.

WPI also fosters relationships with local councils and state governments who assist in the supply of land, capital funding and supportive community housing policy

Each of our projects is a success because we:

  • Collaborate with partners to achieve agreed outcomes.
  • Consult with all stakeholders to ensure we meet their needs.
  • Source suitable land and undertake feasibility studies of sites and cost.
  • Source donor capital contributions.
  • Apply for capital funding from government and commercial banks.
  • Manage and negotiate project contracts.
