Last week we held our AGM at which we launched our election platform and also published the ‘State of the Community Housing Industry 2018’, a comprehensive set of facts and figures about the community housing industry in NSW which adds to our earlier report about the sector’s development achievements…
More than 60,000 people live in homes that they can afford through community housing in NSW.
The community housing industry in NSW is growing and changing. CHIA NSW’s State of the Industry Report 2018 is the only report you need if you want to learn more about community housing in NSW.
For the first time, this report brings together key data about the scale and scope of the community housing industry in NSW in 2018, how it is performing and how it makes a difference to people and families in local communities.
To view report: State of the Industry Report 2018
The shortage of social and affordable housing in NSW means that many households are paying far more in rent than they can afford and are unable to secure their own home. Solving this problem requires a long term housing strategy, actively led and invested in by the government.
CHIA NSW’s Election Platform sets out a pathway to more social and affordable housing. This NSW election, community housing providers are asking for all parties to support a series of actions, including the development of a comprehensive housing strategy backed by a commitment to new supply targets and a dedicated housing minister.
