Want to learn more about affordable housing and why it is so scarce? Our friends at Settlement Services International are hosting a speakers series covering housing issues and this one looks to be great!
'In her first media conference after being sworn in as NSW Premier in January 2017, Ms Gladys Berejiklian vowed to address the housing affordability crisis and said that there was more the government could do about the ‘biggest issue people have across the state’.
Despite stereotypes about homelessness, the reality is that those impacted by the housing affordability crisis are ordinary families – and particularly single people – on minimum wages or income support payments who are forced to choose between basic necessities – such as paying bills, buying food, seeing a doctor – or paying rent.
What exactly is affordable housing, who needs it and why is it so hard to find?
Register now for your chance to hear our distinguished panel of speakers share their thoughts about the causes and consequences surrounding the current housing affordability crisis, and options that could be adopted in NSW to improve the situation.' - SSI
