A place of our own - Tackling the Housing Crisis
In 2004 the Fabians held a forum titled 'A Place of Our Own: Housing Problems and What Can Be Done About Them' at which experts discussed the desperate need for affordable housing for all Australians. Speakers remarked that although the crisis was real and obvious it received little media attention.
At least one thing has changed – we now have a vigorous public debate about the causes and solutions to the cost of housing. But has anything changed in the real world for those trying to get out of the rental market, or for those are homeless?
