Welcome to the October edition of Housing Matters.
CHIA NSW and its members are working hard with partners in Government and the private sector to reduce the number of NSW low-income families in housing stress. The challenge is a big one – with considerable unmet demand for low-income housing in communities across the State. The community housing sector will continue to use all the resources it can to meet this challenge, because whilst we build, own and manage houses, what we are most focused on is providing homes to people. Community housing providers own or manage more than 50,000 homes across NSW, and we are proud of the work we do in helping low-income families to find secure and affordable housing.
Welcome to the September edition of Housing Matters – another busy month for the community housing sector.
Last week, we held a fantastic CHIA Exchange with more than 100 participants across the sector participating on the day across several separate work streams – more details are below.
In other sector news, Hume Housing has completed its Social Housing Management Transfer of 2,200 properties and officially opened its new regional office in Maitland earlier this month – congratulations to all the team at Hume for their fantastic work on the transfer.
Welcome to the August edition of Housing Matters. You will notice that we have changed the format and presentation of Housing Matters to make it easier to access on smartphones and tablets. This is the first step in improving the access to the newsletter - more changes will be coming over the coming months to allow you to access Housing Matters wherever you are and not miss out on the important sector news each month.
In this edition, CHIA NSW is delighted to announce the dates of our CHIA Exchanges for the financial year ahead. With a shorter format, CHIA NSW is looking forward to the Exchanges once again delivering fantastic learning and networking opportunities for our members and partners.
