Auditor-General – Using Information to improve social housing services

​Having a safe and secure home in good condition is essential for people’s well-being and quality of life. Providing houses for people who are struggling to secure appropriate accommodation is an important public service. ​In New Zealand, social housing includes state houses owned by Housing New Zealand Corporation (Housing New Zealand), houses leased by Housing New Zealand, and housing provided by local authorities and non-governmental organisations. Most social housing is provided by Housing New Zealand. ​People who need social housing can be some of the most vulnerable in our society. A significant proportion require social services, including for medical, mental health, and addiction conditions. It is important for Housing New Zealand to have a good understanding of tenants’ needs and its role in supporting them.​​
