Mike Myers - Aussie answers in social housing

From Saturday Morning, 9:35 am on 17 June 2017

Mike Myers is the managing director of Australia's National Affordable Housing Consortium (NAHC) which has built over 3,500 new affordable rental homes in the last seven years, attracting $1.3b in private investment. The NAHC has also recently established a fully market-based shared-equity home ownership programme called BuyAssist Australia, to help people transition from renting to buying. With over 30 years' experience in social and affordable housing in Australia and the UK, Myers was recently in New Zealand to address the Community Housing Aotearoa IMPACT conference held in Wellington, where he shared the lessons New Zealand could learn from Australia.
