Compass to take on management of an additional 1796 social housing tenancies

Hunter based Compass Housing Services has been announced as one of the big winners under a new project that will see thousands of social housing dwellings transferred to the not-for-profit community housing sector.

Minister for Social Housing Pru Goward today announced that from mid-2019 Compass will take on the management of an additional 1796 social housing tenancies in the Cessnock, Singleton, Dungog, Mid-coast and Muswellbrook local government areas as part of the Social Housing Management Transferinitiative.

Compass was selected following a rigorous three-tiered evaluation process that assessed its capacity to deliver quality services and ability to deliver good outcomes for social housing clients.

The move will bring Compass’ portfolio to more than 6200 dwellings, making it one of the largest community housing providers in the southern hemisphere.

Compass’ Group Managing Director Greg Budworth said as well as industry leading tenancy and property management, social housing tenants in the package area would benefit from a range of Compass community development programs.
