Shelter NSW February Members Meeting

Beginning on February 25th, 2021, Shelter NSW is commencing a series of quarterly members meetings - closed forums in which our members can discuss current housing issues and ways in which we at Shelter can effect change.

The meeting will start at 4:30pm and run for an hour and a half, with presentations from our staff and time for open discussion on the key topics.

We will start with an introduction and Acknowledgement of Country at 4:30pm sharp, followed by a run through of meeting etiquette and the full agenda, and a welcome from our CEO, John.

At 4:45pm we'll then get an overview of our Research Agenda, with a focus on our two priority projects - severe overcrowding, and affordable housing - presented by Senior Policy Officer, Ryan Harris. 

Just after 5pm, SPO Cathy Callaghan will give a presentation on the housing issues facing regional NSW communities, and lead an open discussion on how best we can engage with these issues. Whether you live in Bathurst or Bondi, we are eager to hear your ideas, stories, and thoughts on this topic, so please come prepared to share and join in with the discussion!

The meeting will then start to wrap up around 5:45pm, and finish on time at 6pm.

We will be using the ideas and feedback we hear from you to strengthen our work over the next few months, so come prepared to share!

If you are a current member and would like to attend, please contact us by email at admin@shelternsw.org.au to receive the Zoom meeting details.

Lecture Series: Housing Policy and System Reform

Shelter NSW is hosting a series of four lectures on the solutions needed to put Australia’s housing system on a sustainable path. Based on the first comprehensive overview of the subject in 25 years, Professor Hal Pawson will provide an introduction to housing policy in Australia and present a holistic agenda for reform. Leading academics Associate Professor Hazel Easthope and Dr Laurence Troy will build the case for reform by unpacking the structural problem of housing affordability and policies for affordable housing. The series will provide foundational insights for both professionals and individuals who want to understand the causes and solutions to Australia’s structural housing challenges.
