A home is more than just a roof over your head.
If you can’t afford to buy a house and you struggle to compete for a rental property, what happens next?
Tasmania is in the midst of a housing affordability crisis, but it’s not just about putting a roof over your head, it’s about finding a home.
The options for low-income Tasmanian families are very limited.
When searching for an affordable home, many families will live in a series of short-term, problematic housing situations, often relying on the help of family or friends to put them up temporarily.
This instability has an impact on the health and well-being of the family, is challenging for maintaining stable education for children and can make employment or looking for work very difficult.
Essentially we need more homes across various housing types – public and social housing, private rental homes, affordable homes to buy.
