‘Confront the Crisis’ Campaign Launch

November 16, 2022 @ 1:30 pm 2:30 pm

Join us for the launch of the Confront the Crisis campaign, hosted by journalist Sarah Harris.

NSW is in the midst of a housing crisis.

With interest rates and rental prices rising, more people are struggling to keep a roof over their heads.

Vacancy rates have plummeted across the State – in many areas, rental housing is neither affordable or available.

There are 50,000 families and individuals on the social housing waitlist.

The housing market is broken, with supply falling well short of housing demand.

And the people on low to moderate incomes are most affected by these changes.

They are pensioners, young people, women and children, and the unwell.

They are also the workers that keep our communities running – teachers, nurses, cleaners and many more.

That’s why we’re launching a campaign calling on each and every State MP, each and every party, to Confront the Crisis.

The campaign will put pressure on all parties to commit to real, long-term investment in community housing ahead of the NSW State Election.

Hosted by journalist Sarah Harris, who grew up in social housing, you’ll hear from:

  • A panel of people with first-hand experience of the housing crisis who are on the social housing waitlist, or now living in community housing
  • Mark Degotardi, CEO of Community Housing Industry Association NSW (CHIA NSW)
  • More speakers to be announced!

Register now to be part of it. We’ll send you an email with details on how to join the online event after you register.
