ABOUT

Central Coast Tenants Advice and Advocacy Service (CCTAAS) is a free service for Central Coast tenants. We have operated for over 15 years, providing telephone and face-to-face advice, advocacy, and community legal education. We are funded through grants allocated to the Tenants Advice and Advocacy Program, overseen by NSW Fair Trading. Funds are raised from interest received on tenants rental bonds lodged with the Rental Bond Board.

Our services are available to renters in the Central Coast Local Government Area. We also assist tenants in the Lake Macquarie Local Government Area where the postcode is the same as Wyong. The region extends from Gwandalan in the north, down the coast to the Hawkesbury River and its islands in the south, and west to Bucketty and beyond Mangrove Creek. Please note that we do not assist landlords.

CCTAAS is a self incorporated not for profit entity managed by a volunteer Management Committee.

Tenant Advocates – Nurture and Grow

Over 100 Tenant Advocates from across NSW gathered to learn and connect. The conference is organised by the Tenants' Union of NSW, and this was the largest face-to-face conference we have ever delivered.

Forging Ahead – Tenant Advocates Conference

In October 2021, around 100 Tenant Advocates from across NSW came together online for our annual Tenants Advice and Advocacy Services Conference, under the theme 'Forging Ahead'. It was a great opportunity for Tenant Advocates to hear from each other about the issues faced by different renters, and to learn, discuss and innovate in our practice. A main focus of the Conference this year was the huge challenges faced by renters due to COVID and the ongoing housing crisis, as well as how we can forge ahead and continue to improve.
