HC2A Housing and Homelessness Hui – A Guide to Homelessness and Housing in West Auckland
The Purpose of the day is to:
- Accessing Tenancies and Sustaining Tenancies – what resources are out there?
- How is the Government and Auckland Council working to meet the housing need and improve the sustainability of tenancies
- Updating the Housing and Homelessness Resource Directory – what did we miss?
Please note we will have MSD and HNZ representatives present to discuss their processes and to answer any questions.
The day will open with a presentation from Dr Kay Saville Smith discussing the housing situation in New Zealand. We will hear from a range of Government – Housing New Zealand, Ministry of Social Development, Ministry of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and Auckland Council representatives, and social housing providers regarding how the sector is working to improve access to housing and sustain existing tenancies. Workshops will then take place in the afternoon to discuss current barriers to accessing housing and sustaining existing tenancies, and identify what supports are available.
