assistance your client housing worker can offer includes:

meet & discuss your concerns

Our staff are happy to come and visit you in your home to discuss any tenancy or property related issues that you are experiencing.



You have the right to live in a peaceful neighbourhood and disputes or disagreements between neighbours need to be resolved as quickly as possible. If talking with your neighbour hasn’t worked or communication has deteriorated, mediation could help. We are able to refer you to a free independent mediation service and/or provide you with the contact details of a range of mediation service providers.


support services

Sometimes we all need a little support. Our staff have a wealth of experience and knowledge in accessing support services to suit individual needs.


maintenance requests

Our staff are happy to follow-up maintenance requests on your behalf.



In some instances Mangrove Housing may need to issue a notice that requires a tenant to rectify issues and/or activities that have been identified and are in breach of their Tenancy Agreement.

feedback or a complaint​

Mangrove Housing is strongly committed to client support and high standards of client service, as outlined in our Client Charter.  We recognise that an overt complaints process is a vital aspect of client service.


We understand that complaints can give us the opportunity to potentially:

  • rectify a situation

  • improve a relationship

  • correct an error

  • learn from feedback as an organisation

In resolving complaints, Mangrove Housing will be responsive and fair at all times.  We will ensure consistency in complaints handling and ensure that procedural fairness is applied.


how to provide feedback or lodge a complaint  

There is “no wrong door” in making a complaint.  This means that a complaint can be lodged in any manner that is suitable for you.  This might be:

-          verbally – on the phone or in person

-          in an email

-          through the website (click here)

-          in writing

-          through a representative such as a support worker

-          via the annual survey

all clients have the right to:

·         have their complaint received and acted upon

·         express the preferred outcome they are seeking

·         have their complaint taken seriously and managed promptly and fairly

·         have their privacy respected and upheld

·         have a support person, advocate, support worker or interpreter with them when they are talking to us, and

anonymous complaints

Mangrove Housing accepts anonymous complaints, however, at times a full investigation may be difficult where anonymity is a factor.  Where it is possible to speak to the complainant Mangrove Housing will seek sufficient information to investigate and respond to the complaint.  Anonymous complaints can be received through the same channels as other complaints, with phone, writing and website options all providing the opportunity for anonymity.
