Mental health recovery and social housing

A response to Social Housing in NSW Discussion Paper – NSW Family and Community Services
13 March 2015

This is a submission the Commission prepared in response to a request to the community from Family and Community Services NSW (FACS) to provide innovative ideas to reform the social housing system.

Currently the NSW social housing system faces many challenges – funding is decreasing, operating costs are rising and homes are ageing. This makes it difficult to maintain existing properties as well as to build more homes to meet the increasing demand for housing assistance.

Please note that publication of this submission on the Commission website does not signify endorsement or disagreement with the recommendations and findings of the submission on behalf of FACS.
