What’s the workshop about?

In the context of narrowing visions by governments at the state and federal levels, and in the absence of both a National and State (New South Wales) Housing Strategy or Policy - as well as a research and advocacy sector that continues to draw in numerous and diverse voices, we seek to develop an ambitious vision for a person-centred housing system that could deliver on our vision of “a secure home for all”.

We aim to:

  • challenge and change current narratives by articulating a clear vision of a sustainable, fair housing system that others will support; and
  • build a coherent and persuasive set of messages that are informed and influenced by Shelter NSW’ members, supporters and stakeholders. This will help us influence politicians, government and industry, as well as engage new partners and build new collaborations as we work towards an improved housing system in New South Wales.

To achieve this, Shelter NSW is embarking upon a series of discussions and consultations in August/ September 2019 across NSW. A Discussion Paper will be distributed to workshop participants prior to the session and will set out a series of points for contemplation and discussion that we hope will prompt significant engagement with our team as we progress this work, and develop our vision.

Bernie Coates will be the lead facilitator.

Morning tea will be provided. We look forward to engaging with you on this exciting project.
