Organisations unite in rental reform call to Senate inquiry

Anglicare Australia has joined a coalition of more than 80 organisations across Australia urging governments to act swiftly on rental reform in a joint statement to the Senate’s rental crisis inquiry.

The statement calls for fair limits on rent increases, ending no-cause evictions, improving energy efficiency in homes, and independent enforcement of rental protections.

The statement also calls on federal, state and territory governments to aim for at least 10 per cent of all dwellings to be social housing.

The statement is signed by the National Association of Renters Organisations, National Shelter, the Australian Council of Social Services, and many faith-based and housing organisations across the country.
