An FOI request by Tammy Franks MLC uncovered the latest data concerning empty, tenantable Housing Trust properties all over South Australia. The reasons for properties to be vacant and tenantable include: 

  • Housing SA is undertaking minor maintenance prior to re-letting
  • The property is being offered to a suitable household
  • Time required by new tenants to give sufficient notice to current landlords
  • Time required to organise support services for tenants entering the property
We are hoping that the new Government will cease the sell-off of public housing, and open up these empty properties to our most vulnerable members of society who need a safe place to call home. 

Save the date for our Homeless Connect: Health and Housing Expo

Our annual event will be held on October 17 in Whitmore Square, helping to connect people to housing, health and other crucial services. There will also be free entertainment, food and drinks so save the date! Registrations will open soon and last year we were oversubscribed, so get in quick!

Housing Matters Radio Show 

In 2013 Shelter SA produced a radio show to create a media presence for serious debate and discussion about housing and homelessness, contrary to mainstream media, which often only reports superficially about relevant issues in these sectors. We have recently updated the titles of each Housing Matters episode so listeners can easily identify which program they are interested in.  Take a listen!
