Sign the Everybody's Home petition

With the next Federal Budget just around the corner, now is the perfect time to get involved in supporting our housing advocacy. The Everybody’s Home campaign has just launched a petition asking Treasurer Josh Frydenberg to commit to more funding for social housing. Every signature counts, so please follow this link to sign the petition! 

An expansion of social housing will give all Australians a fair go – balancing the housing market, providing families with security and creating jobs. With homelessness expected to rise by nine per cent this year, immediate action is necessary. The Federal Government needs to invest in housing security for all Australians.

Last year’s Federal Budget missed a crucial chance to invest in social housing to help alleviate the homelessness and housing affordability crisis. But you can help make a difference in the upcoming budget.

Make your voice heard, please sign the petition to Treasurer Josh Frydenberg urging him to commit funding for social housing!


Defend and Extend Public Housing!

The fight for more and better public housing is ongoing across Sydney and NSW, with sites in Glebe, Waterloo, Redfern, Erskineville and beyond being slated for redevelopment over the next few years. Shelter NSW is proud to support these historic public housing communities through our advocacy. We encourage our members, locals, and anyone interested in helping with this work to get involved with this campaign to ensure that the (re)development of public housing is fair, inclusive, and meets the needs of each community.

Hands Off Glebe is an organisation that we have been working with closely over the last few months in their efforts to organise local residents and create awareness about the sale and redevelopment of sites like Cowper Street and Franklyn Street. There is plenty of work to be done, and we would love your support if you are able to lend a hand!

If you would like to support the Glebe community, please get in touch with us via email at, or with Hands Off Glebe directly via their Facebook page.
