The Northern NSW Aboriginal Tenants Advice and Advocacy Service (NATAAS) provides advice and advocacy to Aboriginal clients who have issues with their tenancy whether in social, community, or private housing. We provide telephone advice, letters of support, attend the Tribunal if you require support, and mediation where necessary with housing providers on your behalf. We can assist with Housing Appeals Committee applications, and follow up on your repairs issues. We can help find services who can assist you if you require support on other issues, and also attend meetings between you and your landlord (including Housing NSW), and negotiate with landlords if required. NATAAS can provide face-to-face outreach services (we will come to you), subject to availability. We also provide Community Education and Duty Advocacy.
Our services are available to Aboriginal renters in the areas from Wyong all up to Tweed Heads, then northwest to Boggabilla and down to Narrabri, and down to Muswellbrook.
If you are in the Newcastle area, please contact the Newcastle office on (02) 4967 7756.
This is a specialist Aboriginal Service. Non-Aboriginal tenants please contact your local tenants' service.
