Town Hall Hobart

50 Macquarie St | Hobart 7000

It is becoming more difficult to secure affordable and appropriate housing in Hobart.  There are increasing reports of people having trouble accessing permanent and safe accommodation and that this lack of access to affordable homes and rentals has led to higher levels of couch surfing, overcrowding and homelessness.

Join the panelists at the Town Hall on Wednesday 8 August from 6pm to 7.30pm for a conversation around current evidence and experience in the community, recent research data and changing demands.  Together, let’s find solutions to end homelessness in our community.

The panelists will be:

  • Lisa Denny |Institute for the Study of Social Change (UTAS)
  • Pattie Chugg | Executive Officer, Shelter Tasmania
  • Peter White | Deputy Secretary, Housing and Disability and Community Services, Department of Communities
  • Danny Sutton |Chief Executive, Colony 47
