More than a landlord

In celebration of the Wellington Housing Trust's 25th anniversary in 2006, WHT commissioned Wellington public historian Ben Schrader to write More than a Landlord – a short history of Wellington Housing Trust (PDF, 2100kb).

In 2012 an accompanying update to this publication, More than a Landlord: 2007-2012 (PDF, 3100kb), was written by Louise Slocombe to celebrate the Trust's 30th anniversary.

Homes that people can afford: how to improve housing in New Zealand

This book focuses on the concept of partnership to increase investment in affordable housing and is based on presentations and debate from a one-day workshop held in the University of Otago, Wellington in June 2012 - Partnerships for Social and Affordable Housing.

The Wellington Housing Trust was invited by Prof Philippa Howden-Chapman to contribute to the book and the resulting chapter "More than a landlord: realising the potential of the community housing sector" was written by Trustee Clare Aspinall, Director Alison Cadman and supporter Louise Carrington.
