With over 300 delegates attending the previous two Summits, the 3rd Annual Affordable Housing Development Summit (Melbourne, 14-15 July) is back – bringing Australia’s most influential housing leaders from government, housing providers, developers and financiers together to share the latest on policies and strategies advancing affordable housing in Australia.

2nd Annual Affordable Housing Development Summit – Brochure now available!

Against a backdrop of uncertainty in funding and policy, the focus on affordable housing in Australia has never been greater.

With the commissioning of the White Paper on Reform of the Federation and changes in government funding, 2015 marks an important year for new arrangements impacting government, housing providers and support services. Ensuring a steady supply of affordable housing has proved to be an ongoing challenge which requires stronger collaboration between both private and public sectors.

Multicultural housing assistance seminars


Housing NSW and Shelter NSW are holding two seminars for people working with the multicultural community on how they can help people to access social housing assistance.  The same material will be presented at each seminar on 22 May in Ashfield and 2 June at Liverpool. 

 The seminars will provide information on social housing and other FACS Housing NSW products and services; as well as information on resources available to support people who don’t speak English or don’t speak English very well.
