Description: Common Ground Housing is a 40 unit dwelling to house homeless and low income people.  It is an assertive intervention model which addresses homelessness by providing safe, secure accommodation and associated support services for marginalised people.  The accomodation is specifically designed and built in a form which mixes people who have experienced homelessness with low income working tenants who pay affordable rent.
