NT Shelter is proud to be a campaign partner of the Everybody’s Home campaign. The campaign calls on Australian governments to do five simple things to fix Australia’s broken housing system:
In the Northern Territory, 6% of the population are experiencing homelessness, and 50% of Territorians rent. Across the NT, we have a projected shortfall of 8,000-12,000 homes. It’s time to fix the housing system.
We have joined over 300 organisations in signing an open letter to the Prime Minister calling for a social housing construction boom. Read the letter here.
