Everyone in our community has a safe, affordable and healthy home.
To grow sustainably our capacity, capability, influence and impact in community housing.
To provide quality, affordable, healthy homes and services for people in need.
Since 2000, the Nelson region has consistently ranked as being one of the second least affordable housing areas (along with Queenstown and Tauranga) in New Zealand. Increases in rents and home prices have far outstripped increases in wages/benefits for years.
The Trust was established as a community response to declining housing affordability in Nelson and Tasman. We work in partnership with the New Zealand Government, local councils, Housing New Zealand, and other agencies to improve access to good quality, affordable housing to those on low incomes. NTHT also coordinates emergency housing and administers a Warmer Healthier Homes scheme.
