Housing Choices Tasmania is more than a housing provider.
Our Vision and Mission guide the way we deliver our services and how we work with and for local communities. We have a dedicated Community Development team that delivers a broad range of programs to support our residents and local communities, with an emphasis on capacity building, resilience and resident and community engagement.
Importantly, our Community Development team is active in working with other stakeholders such as local Community Houses, Child and Family Centres, Support Organisations and Councils to develop these programs and initiatives.
Many of our residents choose to become active participants in these initiatives and events, which assists with strengthening communities while also providing those you are isolated to engage and learn some new and invaluable skills.
Housing Choices Tasmania has embarked on a program to significantly enhance opportunities for residents to have input into our services.
Housing Choices Tasmania supports an active Tasmanian Resident Advisory Committee (TRAC), which has had members since 2015. The TRAC is a highly valuable voice for our residents and we encourage residents transferring into Housing Choices Tasmania from Housing Tasmania to join the TRAC.
Housing Choices Tasmania also hosts other regular groups to seek feedback from residents, identify emerging issues, encourage broader resident participation and drive some of our tenant initiatives.
