Title

NSW Housing Repairs Campaign

Abstract

Kingsford Legal Centre’s Housing Repairs Campaign seeks to improve the standard of housing for clients living in Housing NSW properties.

The campaign uses a number of different strategies. We are working with our local communities to raise awareness about the issue and empower clients to make complaints to Housing NSW and the Tenancy Tribunal through workshops, advice clinics and articles in community newsletters.

We are placing pressure on Housing NSW through our casework, in particular focusing on increasing complaints to the Consumer, Trader and Tenancy Tribunals (CTTT) and exploring other legal options, such as discrimination complaints.

We are collecting evidence of the problem, lobbying government and politicians and working collaboratively with community organisations within our own area and across NSW.
