In 2018 our CEO Julie Blake embarked on a five-week study tour of the UK and Ireland. Funded by the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust, her focus was ‘to investigate successful resident participation strategies in neighbourhood renewal of public housing’. The report completed for this fellowship can be found on the Churchill Trust website.
Westside Housing sponsored a project by dedicated volunteer Michelle Hogan to learn from the past and to apply these lessons in the future. Michelle undertook interviews with former and current, private and public co-operative housing members, distilling the themes and findings in her report.
