What is it like living at Servants?

When you are a resident at Servants, you have the opportunity to experience stability and comfort in your home. You will live alongside other people, some with stories similar to yours and some very different.

House Managers live on site to provide you with support and nurture a respectful, harmonious house community.

In communal spaces such as courtyard, dining rooms and lounge rooms you will often find people reading the paper, chatting, listening to music (perhaps even playing some!), watching TV or enjoying the fresh air.
