On the 28 April 2017 the Auckland Community Housing Providers network hosted a workshop with the Associate Minister of Social Housing, Hon Alfred Ngaro. The workshop was designed to identify the issues, barriers and solutions to community
housing organisations stepping-up at greater scale to more robustly assist in addressing Auckland’s severe housing problems.
Following the workshop a paper was produced by the Network listing all the issues, barriers and possible solutions identified.
This document is a refinement of that paper. At their May meeting the ACHPN considered the long-list of ideas brainstormed at the workshop and distilled these to short-list of key actionable items that will make a real difference to Auckland’s housing situation.
It is this shortlist the Auckland network is proposing we work with Government to address.The issues shortlisted and our suggested approach are outlined below. The summary also raises a number of wider issues that are beyond the Community housing sectors capacity to influence however in their view also require addressing.
