Australia’s housing problems are generally presented as a housing affordability crisis—the problem framed in terms of the difficulties first home-buyers face in acquiring a property.
TasCOSS calls for affordable, appropriate, safe and secure housing for all and an end to homelessness.
Every day in Tasmania, the Housing Connect partners, Anglicare, Colony 47, Hobart City Mission, the Salvation Army and CatholicCare are on the ground working with people who are severely disadvantaged including people who are currently experiencing housing stress.
We will ensure Tasmania does not make knee jerk reactions that may result in short term solutions and further disadvantage people in the longer term.
