About Housing Associations

Housing Associations

local housing for local people

Housing associations provide long-term housing to low and moderate income earners across the State. 
Housing associations are the social housing landlord of choice for their tenants.
There are 29 housing associations in NSW.  They provide housing across the State from Sydney to Broken Hill in the West. 

The largest housing association manages over 4,000 houses - the smallest around 30.

We have a mission of excellence in community service.  Housing associations boards contain the very best of local expertise in housing and community business management, including community workers, other community agencies, and local government councillors.  The sector has moved towards skills based boards to ensure effective corporate governance.

The NSWRegistration System, the Code of Practice for Housing Associations and Accreditation assures that housing associations maintain a high level of professionalism and standard of conduct.

Housing associations are well linked into local communities and are interested in partnerships.
