About ACHL

Aboriginal Community Housing Limited (ACHL) was established in 2016 to provide better housing options for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and families and to put their needs first.

We are an organisation with strong Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leadership and direction. Our Board has majority membership of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander leaders and it is a requirement that our Chair must be an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander.

An approved community housing provider under the National Regulatory System for Community Housing, ACHL is presently a member of Community Housing Ltd Group (CHL) and is working towards establishing itself as an independent national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community housing provider.

Background

Aboriginal Community Housing Limited was established in 2016 as a member of the Community Housing Ltd group of companies.

We currently manage over 1800 homes across Australia and aim to build partnerships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander services through respectful and productive relationships.

Through our housing services, we have a strong commitment to the principles of self determination through inclusive and two-way partnerships.

At the same time, we strive to promote employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

History & Current Work

ACHL is establishing itself as an independent national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community housing organisation and manages remote and town-based communities in the Kimberley and Goldfields regions in Western Australia.

In all the communities where it operates, the organisation has played an active role in providing new housing and infrastructure, employment and community development programs.

ACHL in NSW will commence offering housing management and support for local communities on the north coast and mid north coast.

  • Property management
  • Tenancy management
  • Support to progress community development initiatives
  • Community/tenant led housing development
  • Improved maintenance delivery
  • Generation of relevant employment and training opportunities

ACHL's approach is to engage with the community first, understand local needs, forge constructive relationships and deliver appropriate services.
