A profile of social housing in Australia /

by Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Institute of Health and Welfare 2010Description: vi, 47 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This report provides an overview of the different social housing programs that were provided under the most recent Commonwealth State Housing Agreement (CSHA), which was in place from 2003 to 2008, and the first six months of the National Affordable Housing Agreement (NAHA), which was introduced in January 2009. It shows that, in 2009, 81%of households being assisted by social housing were in public rental housing, while 9% were in mainstream community housing (social housing managed by the not-for-profit sector). Over the life of the CSHA the number of community housing dwellings increased considerably, while at the same time there was a decline in public rental housing stock. By 2008-09 almost half of the new allocations to social housing were to mainstream community housing, despite representing only about 10% of total stock in social housing. ; The report shows the demographic profile of households in social housing changed little over the course of the CSHA agreement. Older single people made up the highest proportion of household types. The median age for tenants in public rental housing is 54 years, and 44 years for tenants in state owned and managed Indigenous housing (SOMIH), compared to the median age of 37 years for all people in the Australian population. As social housing generally offers affordable rents and some security of tenure, tenants largely report being satisfied and the majority of tenants in public rental and mainstream community housing had lived in the same dwelling for more than 5 years. Occupancy rates were over 90% across social housing, and higher in major cities, where most social housing dwellings are located.Availability: (1)

Community land trusts : what are they? /

by Johnston, Craig | Shelter N.S.W.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Shelter N.S.W. 2009Description: PDF.Other title: Shelter Brief ; no. 39.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2009 Bibliography : p. 21-26Summary: Community land trusts is a type of nonprofit organization that that acquires, owns and stewards land so that it is used for welfare purposes, such as affordable housing and related community facilities and amenities, and so that the cost of the land is effectively taken out of the cost of using that housing and community services by consumers. The organization takes the land out of the market economy and into the social economy, by not participating in normal profit driven processes of land ownership and development It undertakes development of affordable housing and related community facilities and amenities on that land, or it leases the land to other nonprofit organizations to develop affordable housing or related community facilities and amenities on the land. In the latter case, the lease conditions provide for a peppercorn rent, but provide for the dwellings to remain 'perpetually affordable' through conditions on resale - in the case of affordable owner-occupied housing - and conditionson tenancy allocation and rent-setting - in the case of affordable rental housingAvailability: (1)

Good practices for managing Australia's public and community housing assets /

by Kenley, Russell | Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute | Chiazor, Maxwell | Hall, Jon | Heywood, Christopher.

Publisher: Melbourne, Victoria Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute [AHURI]..Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2010 Bibliography : p. 87-93Summary: This project investigates good practices for managing Australia s public and community housing assets. To a large extent the report concerns the identification of existing practices as an attempt to build a picture of asset management in public and community housing across Australia. But a report such as this cannot merely report current practice; in the attempt to search out good practices, or even best practice, external trends (local and international literature) and opinion (of those involved in managing public and community housing) necessarily must be pursued.Availability: (1)

"A report by the Centre for Economic and Social Inclusion for HACT"Summary: This report ... captures the range of activities that housing providers are involved in to help residents into work, highlights particular approaches and projects that seem to be working, and suggests ways in which housing providers could enhance their impact. Particularly it recommends that housing providers build their knowledge base, target their activities and interventions more acutely and build stronger links between their own initiatives and wider government-funded activity, including the Work Programme. Finally, the report calls for efforts from welfare to work contractors and the government to ensure that housing providers have the tools and opportunities they need to boost employment and tackle unemployment among residents.Availability: (1)
