Strong relationships

Weaving good housing together

A strong system of Aboriginal housing demands strong relationships. We are cultivating genuine, collaborative partnerships with other peak bodies, land councils, governments, research organisations, and key stakeholders such as the Northern Territory registrar of the National Regulatory System for Community Housing (NRSCH).

We work with Territory and Commonwealth governments, through the Joint Steering Committee on remote Aboriginal housing and its working groups – and by quietly but powerfully advocating for the rights and interests of Aboriginal people and organisations, including lobbying for a new Aboriginal housing governance system

Our relationships

Our values inform and guide all our work. One thread weaving through all of our work is the will to collaborate.

To that end we seek to cultivate genuine partnerships with land councils, governments, related peak bodies such as NT Shelter; research organisations, and key stakeholders such as the Northern Territory registrar of the National Regulatory System for Community Housing (NRSCH).

We are connected

Aside from members of AHNT, below are organisations we are associated with, in one way or another.
