Building a strong, vibrant community housing sector and creating opportunities for growing more social and affordable housing is important to us. Community Housing Aoteroa supports community housing networks in Auckland, in Te Waipounamu and an emergency housing provider network in Auckland and one in Wellington. A Pacific community housing provider network is supported in Auckland and we work closely with the Housing First Community of Practice group.
There are other ways CHA assists in affordable and social housing developments. This can be through project consultation or in providing advice to support community housing development. If you are a member of Community Housing Aotearoa (CHA) or you are involved in developing community housing you can approach CHA for advice and information here.
For more technical community housing support you can contract with Community Housing Solutions Ltd.
CHA supports a number of local housing provider networks in different regions. Here are examples of three networks that have received CHA support:
- The Auckland Community Housing Providers Network (ACHPN) This is a group of not-for-profit community housing organisations based in the Auckland region that are actively involved in developing and providing affordable housing. Go here to see their website.
- Te Waipounamu Community Housing Provider Network began in 2015 with the support of CHA, and is composed of community housing providers based in the South Island who are actively involved in developing and providing community housing.
- Auckland Emergency Housing provider group
This is a network of community housing organisations with a focus on families in immediate housing need with no alternative supports.
