The standards have been revised to reflect best practice and the regulatory settings in New Zealand aligning with the Community Housing Regulatory Authority (CHRA) registration criteria. Join us to learn how your organisation can embark on the journey of continuous improvement to earn accreditation. The workshop is designed to assist organisations to identify the policies they need, the processes to implement them and the documents which record their progress toward excellence in community housing provision.

How many state houses do we need in Auckland?
Released documents suggest that Government is planning for around 24,000 to 25,000 state owned housing units across Auckland and that these will be supplemented by perhaps 1000 units provided by third parties such as community housing organisations.These figures are close to what has been provided in Auckland for the past decade or so and take no account of Auckland’s rapidly growing population or its burgeoning shortage of affordable housing.
This presentation will consider the question of how much social housing is needed in Auckland. However, answering such a question is not straight forward. It relies on various assumptions or propositions around what is an appropriate role for Government to play in housing markets, and the best form of housing assistance to offer.
In answering this question this presentation will briefly critique the Government’s ideological stance around housing in Auckland. It will offer a reframing of solutions to the challenge of providing adequate housing for Auckland’s benefit-reliant and working poor householders.
