NT Shelter is an independent community based incorporated body that works towards a just and fairer housing system by highlighting the needs of disadvantaged groups. As the peak NT housing body, NT Shelter advocates for appropriate and affordable housing for all members of the community particularly disadvantaged groups and those on low incomes. NT Shelter is funded by the NT Department of Housing to carry out our peak housing body role and we also receive funding for a peak body role in homelessness. NT Shelter primarily advocates for those who are homeless or on very low or low to moderate incomes and who are disadvantaged in a market based housing system.
