Community housing transfers - what's it all about?

With the NSW government announcing the transfer of another 18,000 public housing properties to the community housing sector in coming years, many tenants are asking what it will mean for them and their tenure in social housing.

This Sydney forum aims to bring together agencies responsible for implementing the transfers with tenants and other stakeholders to clarify who will be impacted by these changes, when they take effect, how they will be implemented, and discuss what agencies and tenants will need to successfully navigate the process.

** This agenda is the same as the sold out event being held on 1 May 2017 - please only register if you aren't attending on 1 May.  **

Our agenda for this half day forum is as follows:
