The 'Walk' and 'The Talk' and 'The Support' through...
The Aboriginal Housing Office (AHO) is committed to working with the Aboriginal community housing sector to achieve sustainability and has initiated a number of support strategies to assist housing providers.
Frontline regional support provides Aboriginal Community Housing Providers (ACHPs) with information on what AHO regional offices are doing in the region to assist with the day-to-day challenges faced by many of the organisations.
Regional support is available to ACHPs from their local AHO office who can provide advice and assistance in all areas of Aboriginal housing management including AHO Registration and funding arrangements.
Providers with Stock from NSW Land and Housing Corporation
There are 36 Aboriginal Community Housing Providers that manage stock owned by the NSW Land and Housing Corporation. As these providers manage stock head leased from Housing NSW, they are required to be registered with the NSW Registrar of Community Housing. Training and support is available for these providers though the NSW Federation of Housing Associations. Information on the registration support program can be viewed on the Federation's website.
Housing Our Mob Everywhere (H.O.M.E.) is the unique Aboriginal social housing training program customised specifically for Aboriginal people to complete the TAFE accredited training package "Certificate IV Community Services (Social Housing)".
Through the provision of repairs and maintenance to Aboriginal community houses, and the purchase and construction of dwellings for management by eligible Aboriginal community housing providers for Aboriginal people, the AHO continues to work towards a sustainable future for the Aboriginal community housing sector.
