Living in the Community
About the program
The Living in the Community Program is a partnership between Housing ACT and Conflict Resolution Service which is designed partially as a response to anti-social behaviour within public housing. It also supports individuals and communities experiencing the normal stresses and strains of neighbourhood living.
A representative from Conflict Resolution Service is present at Housing one day per week.
The program supports the following:
who are having problems with other tenants, and who may be the subject of formal complaints by other tenants or by private owners, including some whose tenancies may be at risk due to anti-social behaviour
Neighbours / communities who are affected by anti-social behaviour
Housing ACT personnel, mostly housing managers, who refer tenants to CRS for assistance in conflict management
