WE’RE BRINGING OUR REFLECT RECONCILIATION ACTION PLAN TO LIFE
City West Housing are pleased to announce the endorsement of our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan by Reconciliation Australia.
Maddison Gibbs is a proud Barkindji woman who is a multidisciplinary contemporary artist. The City West Housing resident’s artwork plays a starring role in the organisation’s first Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan.
“I am excited and proud to be a featured artist for City West Housing who is celebrating and bringing Aboriginal culture to the forefront, where it should be,” said Maddison.
“I love living in my City West Housing unit and I never knew how it would positively impact my life in so many different ways. It has given me a stable place to live in my early career which has been trying at times but having my unit made me push through. It’s made my relationships more stable and made my health better.”
– Alice, Operations Manager
“City West are the best! I’m incredibly grateful that I am able to live in a vibrant city at an affordable rent. The convenience of being able to live near where I work also allows me to have a well-balanced lifestyle, which basically means plenty of time for cooking which I love!”
– Richard, NSW Citizenship Ceremonies Officer
“When my family and I immigrated to Australia from Mauritius in 1970, our first steps on Australian soil was in Pyrmont, and although I’ve had the privilege of living in the city for years, today it’s no longer affordable. I’m so fortunate to have my CWH apartment which has allowed me to stay close to my friends and family and community services place of work. Without my CWH apartment I can’t imagine how far I would have to travel to work or even worse, being separated from my support networks.”
– Lee, Home Care Support Worker

Why City West Housing?
Part of my desire to change careers to property was so that I could build affordable housing for people who needed it most as I believe that being able to provide stable housing for someone enables them to live out their life on a greater scale as housing stress is removed from the equation.
