Initiatives we support
Property Industry Foundation
The mission of the Property Industry Foundation (PIF) is to make a tangible difference to the serious and persistent problem of youth homelessness. UDIA Victoria is proud to be an active supporter of PIF, which has seen us enter into an official Memorandum of Understanding with the organisation, forming an alliance that focuses on building safe environments for homeless youths.Learn more about PIFLink
Homes for Homes
UDIA Victoria is a proud supporter of Homes for Homes, an initiative created by The Big Issue, which is committed to tackling the national housing crisis.
Every night 116,000 people in Australia sleep homeless, while another 1.5 million live in serious housing stress.
Homes for Homes is a simple promise that when a home sells, 0.1% of the sale price will be donated to help build homes for those in need.
The issue is too big for any one person, business or government to solve alone, so Homes for Homes have created a simple community empowered solution to a seemingly insurmountable problem.
Mental health & wellbeing
The construction, development and real estate industries are high risk professions for mental health conditions. As the peak industry body for the development industry, UDIA Victoria considers it critically important to bring members together to develop an action plan that’s responsive to the needs, attitudes and behaviours of the workforce. Our industry must work together to support the mental health of its people.
We are firmly of the view that maintaining physical and mental wellbeing should be the priority of all participants in urban development and the building and construction industry. It’s a shared responsibility and employers and employees should all play their part.
The UDIA Toolkit will help our members better understand the workplace impacts of mental health, and our obligations as businesses and as individuals.
The Toolkit will help:
- Identify early warning signs of mental health problems arising in the workplace
- Provide information and avenues of support
- Facilitate opportunities to improve, monitor and manage mental health in the workplace
- Provide takeaway resource guides and action plans that help members remain proactive with a focus on prevention
