Housing support organisations say they’re facing a huge workload, putting burnout risks onto their staff. Everybody’s Home has called on the government to urgently build large numbers of new social housing stock, as well as legislate for better conditions for renters.

Azize said:

We need more social and affordable housing for people in extreme rental stress. Our shortfall is so big that some people in our survey have been waiting for over a decade.

Social housing is the best way to free up cheaper rentals and boost the supply of affordable homes… Our national, state and territory leaders must work to create a better deal for renters. It’s time to end unfair rent increases and no-cause evictions for good. The Federal Government has to also phase out unfair tax breaks for investors.

We’ve heard from people worried they will become homeless with their children, renters in extreme hardship, and older women who are considering sleeping in their cars or on the streets because they can’t find an affordable home.

Even people who own their own home are worried about what the future holds for their children.
