Meeting the demand for affordable housing

Southern Cross Housing (SCH) is committed to helping meet the increasing demand for social and affordable housing. We believe everyone deserves a stable and secure place to live and are proud of our ability to enable our tenants to enjoy a good quality of life.

The Tenant Advisory Committee (TAC)

As a client focused organisation we aim to create vibrant, livable communities and welcome the opportunity to make improvements to our services. We do this by actively engaging with our Tenant Advisory Committee (TAC), ensuring tenants have a direct say and input into policies which impact them.

The TAC is responsible for:

  • Representing tenants and providing constructive feedback
  • Providing ideas and advice on ways to improve tenant participation
  • Involvement in general communication relating to housing
  • Providing advice on proposed changes in service delivery that may impact on tenants.

If you would like more information on how to become a TAC member, please contact or phone 1800 267 088.

How to make a complaint, appeal or provide feedback

We respect the right of tenants and all other parties that we are working with to make a complaint, appeal or provide feedback.

If a tenant disagrees with a decision that relates to their tenancy, they can appeal the decision and request a formal review.

If tenants are unhappy with the standard or type of service they have received, either from staff or contactors carrying out work on our behalf, they are welcome to lodge a complaint with their property manager. Tenants should also follow the same process to report neighbour disputes.

Feedback helps us to make service changes, so we encourage tenants to let us know we are doing right and what needs more work.

Once a complaint form has been submitted, the Property Manager will look into the complaint and respond within two business days. If they need more time to address the complaint, they will send a letter of acknowledgement to communicate more time is required.

If the matter is not resolved to the tenant’s satisfaction, the complaint will be referred to the Senior Property Manager who will acknowledge receipt of the complaint and endeavor to respond within five working days.

If the complaint is still not resolved to satisfaction, then the matter is referred to the Head of Retirement Villages and Community Housing. The Head of Retirement Villages and Community Housing will acknowledge receipt of the complaint in writing and will respond within five working days with a decision or referral to an external mediation body.
