Welcome to Shelter SA the Peak Body for Housing in South Australia
Shelter SA advocates for improved housing outcomes for South Australians who are living on low incomes and in housing need.Read more
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
Shelter SA informs and recommends policy changes or resists policy changes, where needed, to improve housing outcomes for people living on low incomes in South Australia. View Shelter SA's Policy Position.Read more
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. Shelter SA informs and recommends policy changes or resists policy changes, where needed. View Shelter SA's Policy Position
Our research is conducted to support our advocacy. Systematic investigation and community consultation are used to create our evidence based policy positions that aim to improve housing outcomes for people living on low incomes.Read more
If there is an area where we believe there is not enough existing evidence to support a recommendation for change, systematic investigation into it and community consultation are used to create our evidence based policy positions.
