On the 14th of July CHL took over the management of close to 1,200 social housing properties from Housing Tasmania in the northern suburbs of Launceston as part of the Better Housing Futures reform. These properties are located in Mayfield, Mowbray, Ravenswood, Rocherlea and Waverley.
CHL manages two facilities in Launceston and one in Ulverstone. These are the Supported Accommodation model. 2 of the Supported Accommodation Facilities are targeted at people 18 years and over and the third is targeted at youth at risk of homelessness from 16 to 25 years of age. These facilities are managed in partnership with Anglicare Tasmania which provides support assistance to tenants.
We provide long-term secure rental tenancies for people who pay subsidised market rent*. (Please refer to the CHL Rent Setting Policy for more information.)
As an alternative to private rental, our services ensure that people who have low incomes can find a safe and secure housing so their children can attend the local school, the parent or parents can maintain employment or study, and the family can generally have enough money to live on.
We have 19 staff in five offices in Mowbray, Launceston, Ulverstone and North Hobart. For complete list of our office locations.
CHL’s success in delivering sustainable and positive outcomes for tenants and building stronger communities is only possible by working collaboratively with our many partner agencies.
Our partnership agreements vary in type and nature but generally CHL provides or manages the housing in which the partner agency provides the support for varying client needs or programs.
