We are very excited to be able to share our new project! See below media release as given to Preston Press.

After some initial delays, an exciting project to build 11 independent living units for tenants over the age of 65 on Bridge Street in Donnybrook is up and running. The development will incorporate universal design principles and feature nine two-bedroom units, as well as two one-bedroom units within walking distance of the Donnybrook town centre. Alliance Housing is undertaking the project, with work expected to commence on site in April. The $3.125M project is due to be completed by May 2022. With a strong focus on ageing-in-place, the units will meet Australian Adaptable Housing Standards and offer an affordable rental option for eligible persons.

Alliance Housing was established over 20 years ago to assist in the development of a community housing sector in the South West. Building good local networks and creating a strong local presence has assisted them to grow in size and reputation. By providing secure affordable housing and encouraging tenant participation they aim to enrich the lives of those they assist.

Kay Shaw - Acting CEO of Alliance said "Alliance is particularly pleased to be broadening its SW regional housing opportunities to include Donnybrook-Balingup as this has long been in our planning. We strongly support the provision of housing options in local communities where people have likely grown up, lived and worked alongside relatives and friends."

Alliance shares the excitement of local older residents and their families as the complex site comes to life, opening up new opportunities for Donnybrook-Balingup people in particular to live independently in this purpose built complex.
"We are sure the people of Donnybrook will watch the development with keen interest and they, like Alliance Housing, will be eager for the facility to be completed and opening its doors."
