Private Renter Policy and Advocacy Project

Shelter SA aims to explore the need for and possibility of increasing the private rental tenant resources available in South Australia through increasing its private rental tenant policy and systems advocacy and to look at how we continue to include other tenants such as people who are living in rooming houses, residential parks, supported residential facilities and other marginal accommodation. Shelter SA does not wish to compete for or redirect the existing resources or funding of other organisations, nor disrupt the current arrangements in South Australia for individual tenant assistance. Pending the findings of community consultation and research, Shelter SA will make collaborative recommendations about a way forward to better serve private renters and identify the extra resources needed to increase our policy and advocacy in South Australia. This project will provide an update to our earlier papers and recommendations related to private renter advocacy and policy work.
