Mt Druitt. Universities in partnership

Housing NSW has joined forces with faculties of two Sydney universities for a community regeneration project to empower and strengthen the Mt Druitt community and reduce crime in the area. The Community and Environment Project (CEP) is a joint partnership between Housing NSW, the University of Technology (UTS) Built Environment – Designing Out Crime Research Centre and the University of Western Sydney (UWS) Social Work Unit. The multidisciplinary partnership links Housing NSW and the Mt Druitt community with academics in design, criminology, public housing, social work and urban planning. Housing NSW will contribute 50 per cent of the funding for the $500,000 project, matched by funding from the two universities, said Ken Bone, GM, of Greater Western Sydney Housing Services, Housing NSW.
