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.
Community housing providers have been in the news this month with Hume Community Housing signing a MOU with the Tharawal Aboriginal Corporation and Tharawal Aboriginal Housing Corporation to work together to improve housing and social outcomes across South West Sydney. I was fortunate to be able to attend the ceremony and it was a great celebration of community and the culmination of an enormous amount of hard work. More details on the partnership are below – congratulations to all.
