Monitoring housing need

We conduct research in collaboration with other community organisations to assess and monitor housing need in the Nelson area.


We track queries for housing and report to the Nelson City Council, MSD and relevant funders. We also co-ordinate a bi-monthly meeting of the Housing Solutions Group, open to any interested community group.


Our aims are to improve understanding of real housing needs in our community, and better inform council and government investment in both affordable and social housing, in order to get more housing built for people who need it.


We really appreciate funding support for this project from:

  • Nelson City Council Community Investment Fund
  • Community Organisation Grants Scheme
