Recommend Darina:


Little did Darina know that getting involved in the development of a small housing co-operative on the outskirts of Melbourne back in the early 90’s would have a profound impact on her life… Watching community development workers assist a diverse group to build skills to manage their own housing inspired her to return to study and begin a 20 year long career in community housing. Having managed transitional housing for people with disabilities, long term housing for people affected by a mental illness and ultimately returning to the Co-operative Housing sector, Darina is now the Manager of Co-operative Development and Strategy at Common Equity Housing Ltd.
