Community Housing Aotearoa say it is pleased to see the Ministry of Social Development continue to publish informative data on social housing but is concerned that the level of social housing need continues to increase.
”Yesterday’s release shows that the Ministry of Social Development is continuing progress toward more open and transparent information sharing,” says Scott Figenshow, CE of Community Housing Aotearoa.
“The Ministry’s Social Housing Quarterly Reports are an important tool for those working towards seeing all New Zealanders well-housed. It marks a new pinnacle in data sharing as we are seeing an increasing level of detail.”
“We agree it’s a good thing that more people are coming forward to document their housing need. But we need to go further and document all requests for housing assistance, not only those that meet the current criteria for eligibility.”
