Social Inclusion Initiatives - Initiative One
Turning public housing area teams effectively into ‘community housing’ organisations. The problem: State wide centralised departments are no longer the right type of organizations to be managing social housing estates. The State housing authorities were established in the 1940s as public works organizations designed to build tracts of housing for sale or rent to households in employment. Now they administer welfare housing increasingly rented to only those most in need (many of whom are single member households), during the time they are in need.
