Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese, and Minister for Housing and Homelessness, Julie Collins, visited Centacare Evolve Housing and St Joseph Affordable Homes sites in Bridgewater on Wednesday 22nd of June.

Anthony Albanese and MP Julie Collins discussed the policies that will be put in place across all levels of government to support social and affordable housing and deliver more homes to more Australians in need.

"Nothing is more important in determining people's opportunities in life, than a secure roof over their head," said the Prime Minister, "it is important that we have communities like this and I want to congratulate St Joseph Affordable Homes and the organisations associated with the community here who have this vision".

The Prime Minister went on to highlight that this vision is not just about building and construction. It's about building homes for people, training people to provide them with skills and opportunities, connecting people to social services, and finally connecting people with community-based infrastructure to ensure a real quality of life.

"This project and the 21 apprentices who are working on these homes in this community - and they are people from this community -  are making a difference," said the Prime Minister.

Well done to the entire team for executing this event to such a high standard. A special thank you and congratulations to St Joseph Affordable Homes Apprentices Izaiah and Lukas for doing an amazing job of meeting the Prime Minister and speaking to the media.
