The Rental Affordability Snapshot is designed to highlight the lived experience of looking for housing while on a low income. It focuses on the Australian population who earn the least income – Commonwealth benefit recipients and minimum wage earners.
Each year in April, Anglicare Australia agencies across Australia search local newspapers and real estate websites for rental accommodation.
And each year the results clearly demonstrate the lack of affordable and appropriate housing for people on low incomes.
