Elections 2019 - where to now? We would like to hear from you
Housing advocates across New South Wales have endured a grueling first half of 2019. Back-to-back state and federal elections featuring some of the most promising housing platforms we’ve seen since 2009 have both returned the status quo.
Ned Cutcher our Senior Policy Officer ponders what this means for the work of housing advocates. The answer - get back to basics, and talk to each other about what’s working and what’s not within our own lines of sight.
As always, Shelter NSW wants to hear from you. We need to learn from you, and to understand what matters to you when it comes to the challenges of housing the people of New South Wales. If you’re so inclined, please drop us a line or give us a call to make a time for a conversation, or let us know when might be a good time for us to come to you. Now, as ever, there’s a lot to talk about.

"Many organisations have a clear history, being established on a particular date in a
specified location by a known group of people.
Not so for Shelter, or National Shelter.
Both organisations emerged gradually and informally,
as befit collectives formed by activists keen for change."
