Indigenous capacity building

Senior Indigenous housing managers and practitioners are needed to deliver better outcomes. To achieve this they need the support of improved Indigenous housing research and policy. With its partners, AHURI seeks to achieve an increased number of Indigenous people participating in high quality, policy relevant research.

We know this must happen alongside a broader increase in the participation and seniority of the Indigenous housing workforce. That is why this program aims to increase the number and capacity of Indigenous people working on a range of issues—from asset management to research—in the Australian housing sector spanning private, NGO and government organisations.


The Indigenous housing workforce capacity building background paper provides a background resource for AHURI’s Australian Indigenous Housing Workforce Development Program. Authored by the AHURI Research Synthesis Service, the paper seeks to identify workforce implications from the housing research evidence base and to synthesise findings on effective workforce capacity building strategies for Indigenous people.
