Homes Vic has released the Market Engagement Brief for the Aboriginal Grants Round and to date Homes Vic and their consultants have met with the ACCOs and run a workshop with the community housing sector. However there has not been an opportunity for CHOs to learn more about the ACCO sector – who they are, what services they run and what they would like from a partnership with CHOs. Similarly the ACCOs have not had an opportunity to talk with the sector more broadly.


AHV and CHIA Vic have joined forces to organise an on-line forum for CHOs and ACCOs to learn about each other, exchange ideas and to start the conversation about working together.

Come along and learn more about each other in an informal setting – only community housing and ACCO staff have been invited.


Chair – James Atkinson – CEO Aboriginal Community Elders Services


Shaun Middlebrook, Manager, Strategic Policy, Advocacy & Communications AHV

Brief Overview of ACCOs and the Aboriginal Grants Round


Rian Branthwaite, State Operations Manager, Community Housing Victoria Ltd

Brief Overview of the Community Housing Sector and CHVL’s existing partnerships with aboriginal organisations


Following these short presentations there will be a moderated Q & A session where participants can ask questions of a panel of an ACCOs, AHV and a CHO.

Each panel member will be asked to begin by describing what their organisation would like to achieve through the round.


Date:                Tuesday 30 November 2021
