Bridge Housing has helped to bring to fruition two leading research reports impacting social and affordable housing policy and practice through our sponsorship contributions to the Australian and international research projects.

CEO John Nicolades, who is also Vice Chair of the Community Housing Industry Association (CHIA) national Board, said: “Robust, contemporary research underpins both good policy and practice, and it provides a sound evidence base for the vital contribution the community housing sector plays in housing people affordably.”

Bridge Housing is delighted to have helped deliver these important research reports in recent weeks:
