February Housing: Rental Minimum Standards | Community Campaigning

Wednesday, 15 February 2023 - 9:00am to 10:00am

 This housing week, Kevin ans Zeb kick off the program with Shane McGrath from Housing for the Aged Action Group (HAAG), discussing some of HAAG's work in areas that disproportionately affect older tenants, but indeed relevant for all. Some of the topics include rent increases and cost of living, issues in phasing, implementation, and glaring omissions in rules for landlords' rental minimum standards, and eggplant parmigiana.

 If you're an older Victorian with a housing issue, you can call HAAG toll-free on 1300 765 178 or visit their website, www.oldertenants.org.au

 Listen to HAAG's radio program Raise the Roof 5:30-6pm, on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month on 3CR.

 Next up, we speak with public housing activists and advocates, Cathryn Murdoch and Jack Verdins, who give an update on Louise Goode's unfair eviction by Common Equity Housing Ltd (sign the petition here), the federal government pouring funds into the farce of privately-run "social", "community" and "affordable" housing, key human rights issues and representation involved in the rental assistance arguments, and the importance of community-led campaigning.


 Get involved - community campaigns for public housing: 

 Defend and Extend Public Housing and Public Housing - Everybody's Business hold regular vigils outside Victorian Parliament every Thursday at 12pm
