The community housing sector has been identified as the growth vehicle for Victoria’s social housing, and, through the Big Housing Build, is expected to increase its property portfolio by 40% in the next four to five years.
As the sector’s peak body, CHIA Vic is continuing to work with members to deliver this growth by:
- Advocacy, representing the sector’s position to State Government and other key bodies, to build a stable and supportive policy environment to facilitate long-term growth of the community housing sector.
- Engaging with members and other stakeholders to identify issues and areas of concern, and working collaboratively on identifying and sharing best practice.
- Offering training and other professional development opportunities to ensure the community housing workforce has the skills and knowledge it needs to deliver high quality services to tenants.
- Sharing information and developing campaigns that raise the profile of community housing with a range of stakeholders, including the general public.
