Shelter NSW Local Housing Forum

Across NSW, Council elections will be held this December, and Shelter NSW would like to make sure that housing is a key policy focus for as many Councillors and candidates as possible across the state.

To put housing firmly on the election agenda, we are hosting a Local Housing Forum on October 14th to discuss key housing issues and what Councils can practically do to help local communities. This Forum is open to all! We hope to see representatives from as many different LGAs across NSW as possible - whether you're involved in community organising, you have faced housing issues personally, you work in the housing or advocacy sector, or you're just passionate about housing justice, we encourage you to come along and add your voice to the discussion. We also encourage you to invite your Councillors and Council candidates - we certainly will be! The discussion will be collaborative and practical, so we hope to see our elected representatives there with us in the Forum.

The Forum will hear from Shelter NSW staff who are working on a variety of key issues across the housing spectrum, as well as experienced organisers, activists, and professionals. We hope this will help clarify the complexities of the housing system, to give you confidence to make housing a decisive election issue! We will be focusing mainly on how Councils can help deliver more Social and Affordable housing in both Greater Sydney and Regional NSW, but we will also provide opportunities for you to voice your own concerns, raise questions, or share your experience with housing issues.
