The Australian Co-operative Housing Alliance (ACHA) has been established to advocate for the benefits of the housing co-operative model and the growth and diversification of the social housing sector in Australia.

ACHA is an alliance of Registered Community Housing Providers that deliver co-operative housing, including Common Equity Housing Ltd (CEHL) Victoria, Co-operation Housing (WA), Common Equity NSW, Common Equity S.A. and United Housing Co-operative (as a representative of Victorian independent rental co-operatives). ACHA is supported by the Business Council of Co-operatives & Mutuals (BCCM).
