Shelter NSW has been operating since 1975 as the State's peak housing and advocacy body. Our vision is A SECURE HOME FOR ALL.
We pursue our vision through critical engagement with policy and practice, and thought leadership. We provide systemic advocacy and advice on NSW housing policy and legislation to resolve housing inequality. And we seek to ensure that the voices of housing consumers are included in our policy responses.
Our approach involves engaging, collaborating and connecting with people and organisations across the housing system including government, the private and not-for-profit sectors and consumers.
Research plays a key role in our advocacy. We investigate the causes of inequality and injustice in housing and develop evidence-based solutions that aim to deliver a fairer housing system for all.
