Title

Social Housing Consultation - tenant video submissions

Subtitle Amplifying tenants' voices in government consultations
Abstract

We worked with local housing tenants to assist them make 10 video submissions and 6 written submissions to NSW Government’s Social Housing consultation. We offered a choice of formats because not all tenants feel comfortable expressing themselves in writing, and we wanted the Government to see and hear directly from tenants.

We developed resources and hosted a forum at a local community centre for 50 tenants to inform them about the consultation and making a submission. Staff and students assisted tenants write or record submissions. We developed consent processes for editing/sending in the submissions, and using stories in our submission.

The following resources are available for sharing:

  • Authority forms for use of recordings 
  • Template submissions
  • Guides for making written or video submission
  • An overview of the technology and process we used to make the video submissions
