About Us
Brisbane Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Community Controlled Housing Authority (BATSICCHA) owns, manages, builds and finances its own community property portfolio. We are a direct provider of long-term and emergency community housing for low-income Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and families experiencing housing need and unable to enter the private housing markets.

As key aspect to BATSICCHA’s approach is that we do not consider community housing to be a permanent solution for housing affordability, or a life-long destination for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people experiencing homelessness and housing need. In accordance with our founding Vision, our ongoing Purpose is to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to become economically empowered and transition through community housing to the private rental or home ownership markets.

To these ends, the last five to ten years have seen focused efforts attributed toward further developing and strengthening the Company’s governance, leadership and management capabilities. The aim has been to set in place the foundation for us to begin scaling up our operations, with a focus on increasing the supply of affordable housing and economic development opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, businesses and wider community.

These priorities are encapsulated in BATSICCHA’s 10year Economic Development Strategy; launched in 2017/2018, which sets out our three lead priorities and their associated short and long-term strategies. Our 10year priorities are to:

1.     Grow and diversify the current supply of safe, accessible and affordable housing across the housing continuum;

2.     Maximise employment, training and procurement opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and businesses; and

3.     Support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and community housing tenants to become economically empowered and transition to the private rental or home ownership markets.
