Vasey Communities

The Operator

At the core of Vasey’s values is the late Mrs Jessie Vasey, a war widow of Major General George Vasey, a distinguished Australian soldier whose aircraft crashed near Cairns on a flight to New Guinea in 1945. Mrs Vasey received a pension but lived in near poverty, as did many other war widows at the time. That same year she formed the War Widow’s Guild in Victoria to fight for better conditions for war widows and their families. Within just two years the Guild had become a national organisation fighting on a range of issues, including housing.

Building A Brighter Future

The solution was to start building homes for war widows over the age of 60 years, who were considered particularly vulnerable and unable to find affordable housing. With tremendous determination and resilience, Mrs Vasey started with a few converted older homes – but would eventually lead to more substantial building programs. Over time the invitation for accommodation would be extended to ex-service women, female family members of ex-servicemen, relatives and many others in need of support due to sickness, poverty, destitution or distress.

A Lifestyle That Everyone Deserves

Today, the ideals that were first introduced by Mrs Vasey not only extend to both men and women over 55 years from all backgrounds, but also to those who share a common desire to enjoy an independent and dignified lifestyle. Vasey currently offers four quality retirement communities in some of Sydney’s most picturesque suburbs – all designed and managed to serve the purpose for which Mrs Vasey’s vision first came about.

While Vasey’s housing portfolio is diverse, common to all of our friendly villages is the caring, compassionate and respectful character that is enjoyed by residents in each community Today, Vasey remains a not-for-profit organisation offering a wide mix of accommodation that includes affordable, low-cost housing through to new luxury accommodation on Sydney’s North Shore. With a heritage and tradition that has been built upon independence and dignity, Vasey’s supportive team and strong vision for what really matters to residents can be seen in every village.
