Tenants' Union of NSW and Public Interest Advocacy Centre Joint Submission to the NSW Parliament's Follow up Review of NSW Public Housing Maintenance Contracts


The Tenants’ Union NSW and PIAC are providing this joint submission to the Follow-up Review of the Management of NSW Public Housing Maintenance Contracts. The Tenants’ Union and PIAC have significant experience and expertise in the complex policy area of housing and homelessness. We draw on our experience as well as input from TAAS and HPLS networks who provide direct support and legal assistance to social housing tenants.

We urge the NSW Government to consider investment at scale in maintenance, upgrading and new supply of social housing. Combined with a broadening of eligibility criteria, this has the potential to address structural housing issues and deliver better outcomes for the people of NSW including the most vulnerable.
