Security Through Social Housing

The Need for a Generational Investment in NSW’s Public Housing System

NSW’s housing crisis is the most pressing public policy challenge facing the state. Housing affordability in NSW, and Sydney in particular, has been getting worse for decades. But in recent years, surges in rental and house prices, coupled with a sustained cost-of-living crisis, has brought many families to breaking point, driven up homelessness, and placed inordinate strain on NSW’s public and community housing sector.

A well-funded social housing system in NSW is crucial for addressing the housing crisis, promoting economic resilience, and fostering inclusive communities. By investing in social housing initiatives, we can create a brighter and more equitable future for all residents of NSW.
