A community of Practice is a way of bringing together people and organisations working on the front line so that they can share knowledge and good practice, discuss issues and work out how best to collaboratively overcome them. The idea is that we are all experts in the work we do so we all have something to contribute and, by working together, we are strong and able to make more progress towards our collective goals. This Community of Practice is relevant for advocates, practitioners, navigators and tenancy managers involved in supporting tenants and whānau and / or managing housing across all parts of the Community Housing sector.
The views and opinions discussed as part of the session are not definitive – it is up to each individual / organisation to determine the appropriate interpretation and / or practice for them. Community Housing Aotearoa (CHA) will seek to provide additional guidance and more information where questions are raised and gaps identified, including raising with our colleagues in government.
