TRUE OR FALSE THURSDAYS!TRUE: More people than ever before are experiencing homelessness or housing stress across WA, as limited stock and highly priced rental properties leave tenants unable to find a home. This situation is predicted to worsen when the moratorium on rent increases and evictions ends in March 2021. There is already an estimated 15, 700 households on the wait list for social housing, more than 1, 000 people in WA sleeping rough every night and another 8, 000 who are the hidden homeless. These figures will continue to grow until direct action and long-term solutions are implemented. Shelter WA's new campaign ‘Unlock Housing’ has created a plan based on collaboration to stop the housing crisis in its tracks!
