Housing Authority team at IPAA Awards


Judges had a hard time choosing the winner of the Best Practice in Collaboration Between Government and Non Government Organisations category at this year’s Institute of Public Affairs Australia WA Achievement Awards, instead announcing joint winners.

Congratulations to the WA Museum’s Yurlmun: Mokare Mia Boodja and to the City of Cockburn and Curtin University’s Cockburn Health & Community Project.

The Museum’s project was a partnership between the Albany Heritage Reference Group Aboriginal Corporation, the WA Museum and the British Museum which sought to reconnect the Menang community with sacred objects from the British Museum’s collection, facilitating interpretation, community engagement, personal response and the sharing of cultural knowledge.

The Cockburn Health & Community complex was built to help address rising levels of obesity and a lack of effective intervention. The project was ‘accomplished through the implementation of a tailored partnership model and the formation of exemplary strategic partnerships’.

The Housing Authority (pictured with Stuart Reid from WACOSS) were also nominated in this category for the collaboration with WACOSS, supported by Shelter WA, to co-design the model for a Private Rental Subsidy Pilot. The Pilot met its 200 tenancies milestone at the end of June.
