- Improving access to social housing resource kit: a practitioner's guide to review and reform of social housing allocation systems
- Hulse, Kath; Burke, Terry
- This Resource Kit is a stand-alone document which also forms Part C of the Final Report for this project. Allocations are at the core of social housing provision. But allocations systems are not static. Changing financial pressures, changing client needs, restructuring of national and local housing markets, new policy directions (e.g. growth of affordable housing) and new policy ideas (e.g. client choice) may require a housing provider, or a set of providers, to review or change their allocations system or sub-parts of it. This short kit is designed to assist social housing providers in undertaking reviews of their allocations system, and in changing those systems, e.g. adoption of choice-based lettings, common housing registers or local area allocation provision. The kit is based on research undertaken by Swinburne University of Technology for two AHURI projects: Allocating Social Housing (Burke and Hulse 2003; Hulse and Burke 2005) and Improving Access to Social Housing: Common Housing Registers and Other Potential Reforms (Hulse, Neske and Burke 2006; Hulse, Phillips and Burke 2007).
