Parkridge and Bamford communities both after suffering an injustice by government not rectifying their dilapidated houses of more than 130 beneficiaries, and those blocked out of the housing system conducted a Social Audit as a means to addressing their housing issue. A social audit is a process that provides a way for communities to build evidence, monitor a service by cross checking what was budgeted or planned for compared to what is physically on the ground. This monitoring tool assist communities to ensure effective and meaningful public participation and allows the community to engage government on processes that affect their livelihoods.
