Shelter SA advocates for improved housing outcomes for South Australians who are living on low incomes and in housing need.

Our advocacy aims to influence policy, legislative, funding and service delivery decisions within political, economic and social systems and institutions. Our advocacy includes media campaigns, public speaking, research and community engagement to promote public debate and raise awareness about housing affordability.

Advocacy in all its forms seeks to ensure that people, particularly those citizens who are in need and are most vulnerable in society, are able to:

  • Have their needs included in decisions that affect them
  • Defend and safeguard their rights
  • Have their voices genuinely considered when decisions are being made about them

Policies and legislation shape the way institutions and organisations operate and can have a huge impact on people’s everyday lives. Policies are used to determine eligibility for services, provision of resources, and determining courses of action.

These are the type of solutions we need right now to address the rental crisis, the issues to address are land and permission #saparli

This emergency shelter has been designed for people displaced by disaster. Its foldable, can be stacked and transported 5 at a time & set up in 1 hour. Multiple units can be connected together. 1 bed, 1 bath, kitchen & living room #HomelessnessConf2022

It was a community led response that saved thousands of lives in #Lismore when governments were found wanting & not agile enough to immediately respond. Months later, locals are still living in tents. The parallels to the fires in the south are stark #HomelessnessConf2022

Leanne Mitchell from @BrimbankCouncil reminding us that local govt see things (homelessness) before others do.

And local govt have a critical role in education and engagement with community.

Its hard to believe that we hand out blankets to rough sleepers night after night instead of providing shelter. Please donate if you can: Sleeping bag 'dearth' hits Adelaide homelessness charity https://t.co/wKh5yIOwAy via @indaily
