National Shelter welcomes federal funding

This week, Minister Tanya Plibersek announced that National Shelter would receive federal funding in the order of $200000 over the next 2 years.

Chairperson of National Shelter Adrian Pisarski welcomed the funding and said that it will assist National Shelter to provide advice and develop policy responses which include tenant and housing consumer perspectives.
“Without funding over the last decade, our capacity to effectively represent consumers has been limited,” Mr Pisarski said.

“In receiving this funding over the next two years, we hope to take on a much more active role in consumer advocacy by ensuring that perspective is considered on the government level,” he continued.

“We look forward to working more closely with Minister Plibersek and other members of Government for improved housing outcomes for low income Australians.”
