MIN16: The leading edge in Indigenous tenancy management

Many problems arise from the difference between culturally appropriate Indigenous ways of living and mainstream housing tenancy arrangements. This session highlights leading practice in Indigenous tenancy management including a community housing group working with Aboriginal communities to create partnerships with government and outside organisations, and research on supply and management of housing for Aboriginal people.
