Making The Way For Change: CORT AGM

January 15, 2024

Earlier in November, the Committee of Residents and Tenants held its Annual General Meeting (AGM) at Bennett Street Lodge in East Perth.

Guest speakers included Alex Kepes (Community Engagement, Housing Choices Australia) and Sue (Chair, Advisory Tenant Committee, Housing Choices Australia) who shared valuable insights and learnings from their committee and overall tenant engagement.

Congratulations to the following tenants who have been successful in joining the CORT: Janice S, Dianne R, Robert A, Simone R, Carly B, David J, and Amanda R – we are looking forward to seeing your contribution to the committee in 2024! Foundation Housing is also pleased to share that Claire from Subiaco (Chair) and Neil from Perth (Deputy Chair) were re-elected to their positions for another 2-year term.

Building Capacity

The CORT undertook training late last year to learn more about Foundation Housing, the purpose of the CORT, their roles and how they can contribute to managing and sustaining positive tenancies in their representative positions.

Schedule planning for 2024 has taken place with key themes including anti-social behaviour, positive tenancy behaviours, managing complex tenancies, tenant involvement and much more.
