To grow the supply of affordable and social housing in New Zealand involves many organisations. Community Housing Aotearoa and Te Matapihi collaborate with key players to help make this happen and to support the development of the community housing sector. Some of the areas the sector is collaborating on are:
Supporting the development of social and affordable housing, particularly in Auckland, has involved many in the sector and you can learn more here.
Government, housing groups and the sector are coming together to find better housing solutions for Māori.
Others are working together to discuss Pacific people’s housing aspirations.
A number of CHA members are keen on learning about how a Housing First approach can be implemented in New Zealand to address homelessness.
Three networks exist with our support:
- The Auckland Community Housing Providers Network (ACHPN)
(ACHPN) 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 Wai Pounamu 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.
On a national level we have some key relationships with groups such as The New Zealand Council for Infrastructure Development, National Council of Christian Social Services, The Australasian Housing Institute, and PrefabNZ.
