Acting Access Housing Chief Executive Officer Lyn Brun has joined the Community Housing Industry Association WA Regional Committee.
The CHIA WA Regional Committee consists of a range of Community Housing Provider managers and leaders and industry specialists who work together to discuss and apply CHIA’s national advocacy agenda at a WA level.
“It is a great outcome for Access Housing and our position within the sector in WA that the company has representation on the state regional committee,” Ms Brun said.
CHIA is the peak industry body for the Australian Community Housing industry, which provides one in five of Australia’s social housing properties.
As a member-funded organisation, CHIA is not reliant on government funding. This enables it to be an independent voice shaping social and affordable housing policy and programs at a federal level.
On behalf of its members, CHIA also undertakes research, policy development and advocacy in relation to social and affordable housing issues.
Based on national and international evidence, CHIA’s core argument is that the much-needed growth and development of the Australian affordable housing system can only be achieved if the Community Housing industry is empowered to play a significantly expanded role.
