Nurses Quarters

Built 1960s for the Health Department as quarters for nurses; purchased by Department of Communities in 2008 for $15.5 million. In 2021 property and tenancy management taken over by St Patrick's Community Support Centre (St Pat's) as a key Fremantle lodging house under a new five-year lease agreement with the Department.

The lodging house located at 100 Hampton Road in Fremantle provides accommodation to low-income earners and people who may otherwise be at risk of homelessness.

St Pat’s will take over management of the complex from Foundation Housing, a community housing organisation that has managed it since 2009.

As a registered community housing organisation managing 140 tenancies, St Pat’s has extensive experience in managing lodging house accommodation in the South Metropolitan Region, and is a specialist homelessness provider delivering a range of support services to vulnerable Western Australians – often in partnership with Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations (ACCOs).

St Pat’s already has experience working at 100 Hampton Road, having managed and supported the tenancy of 20 additional occupants that have been accommodated under a sublease arrangement with Foundation Housing on the site.

The Department of Communities will work with Foundation Housing and St Pat’s to ensure a smooth transition of the management of the complex.
