Award recipient – Leading Innovation

We were stunned and humbled to receive the NSW AHI (Australasian Housing Institute) award for Leading Innovation in partnership with Pacific Link Housing, who championed the submission.

The calibre of submissions demonstrates the high esteem in which the AHI is held and the important role it plays in uniting and supporting a vibrant and self-confident social housing sector.
