Homelessness and Housing Forum

It is becoming more difficult to secure affordable and appropriate housing in Hobart.

There are increasing reports of people having trouble accessing permanent and safe accommodation and that this lack of access to affordable homes and rentals has led to higher levels of couch surfing, overcrowding and homelessness.

Please join us at the Town Hall for a conversation around current evidence and experience in the community, recent research data and changing demands.

Together, let’s find solutions to end homelessness in our community.

The panellists will be:

Lisa Denny
Institute for the Study of Social Change (UTAS)

Pattie Chugg
Executive Officer, Shelter Tasmania

Peter White
Deputy Secretary, Housing and Disability and Community Services, Department of Communities

Danny Sutton
Chief Executive, Colony 47

Presented by the City of Hobart, in conjunction with Colony 47 and the Institute for the Study of Social Change (UTAS)
