Changing Lives and Communities 

We are a registered Tier 1 community housing provider and charity with a long history of delivering community housing in Sydney. We first began as SWISH, the South-West Inner Sydney Housing Cooperative, in 1984.  

Since then, we have joined with local community housing providers, including the Inner West Housing Association, Darlinghurst Area Community Housing Scheme, Burwood Area Community Housing and the Eastern Suburbs Rental Housing Association, officially becoming Bridge Housing in 2009. Today, we manage 3,600 properties across metropolitan Sydney, home to 5,300 people.   

Our purpose is to change lives through more homes and quality services.   

Bridge community

A diverse Sydney community of residents call Bridge home.

Our Wellbeing approach 

Our wellbeing approach is at the heart of our tenancy support.  We identify individual support needs and pathways referrals when a tenant joins Bridge and assist them throughout their tenancy journey. 

Always was and
always will be

Bridge Housing acknowledges that the land we live and work on always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
