We want to help our members increase their cyber preparedness and manage risks using best practices in order to deliver optimal business operations.
CHIA NSW, under the Industry Development Strategy, have developed a suite of resources to assist community housing providers to increase their cyber maturity and manage cyber risks.
The Information Technology and Cyber Risk Assessment Tool and associated resources have been created to assist CHIA NSW and its members to identify, quantify and record the current state of cyber security and identify suitable mitigation and control strategies to improve overall Cyber Security posture.
CHIA NSW would like to acknowledge the funds provided by the NSW Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) to help develop this report under the NSW Community Housing Industry Development Strategy. The IDS is a partnership between CHIA NSW and DCJ.
We want to help our members to create sustainable tenancies and deliver best practice responses to managing antisocial behaviour.
The Approaches to Managing Antisocial Behaviour Toolkit aims to assist and support the community housing industry to respond fairly and effectively to all forms of antisocial behaviour, in order to:
• Increase the proportion of complaints resolved without the need to escalate to enforcement action
• Reduce the number of tenancies terminated on the grounds of antisocial behaviour
• Increase tenant satisfaction with community housing providers’ handling of antisocial behaviour complaints.
CHIA NSW would like to acknowledge the funding provided by the NSW Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) to support the development of this toolkit under the NSW Community Housing Industry Development Strategy. The NSW Community Housing Industry Development Strategy is a partnership between CHIA NSW and DCJ.
Resources and tools
Community Housing Providers (CHPs) have always sought to achieve Value for Money (VfM) that is, to do the most for their tenants with the resources they have. However, in recent years, increasing demand from both the government and community on accountability for public spending has resulted in pressure on the industry to have a more proactive focus on VfM, and an increased need to confidently articulate and evidence VfM.
The overall focus on VfM metrics can lead to CHP’s identifying ways to serve and support tenants more effectively and to drive cost and service efficiencies. The identification, analysis and reporting on key VfM metrics is a powerful way to drive data-led continuous improvement.
Through extensive consultation and consensus with a number of key industry stakeholders and researchers, as well as extensive national and international research on VfM, a community housing industry 15-metric VfM Framework has been developed.
This report presents the process undertaken for those engaged in the development of the Framework and pilot project, as well as conclusions and next steps for the industry to ensure that they can effectively lead the VfM conversation with those inside and outside of the industry, most notably Government.
