Active Partnership Framework

Our partnership relationships are managed within a complicated and highly regulated stakeholder environment. This includes: the Disability Act, scrutiny from the Victorian Housing Registrar, client requirements, family, advocates, staff OH&S, DHS Office of Housing, DHS Disability Services and all regional DHS offices. The reporting regime varies from program to program and includes Commonwealth and Victorian reporting undertaken by Active and/or partner with input from Active.

Active operates on a portfolio system so each property is consistently managed by:

  • A specified Maintenance Officer who handles responsive maintenance requests which can be organised without the need to visit the property to review proposed works; and
  • Housing Officer, who visits property, knows clients and staff, undertakes regular audit inspections, manages larger jobs, attends property to meet with trades and review proposed works and manages any larger works and conducts quality inspections of completed works
