Australians are facing a growing crisis in affordable housing. Investors rule the market, renters face insecurity and unaffordable rents while many home owners face the hurdle of mortgage stress. The choice of housing appears bleak between buying or renting, apartment life or living in a house, paying more to be close to work or spend long hours commuting. Surely there must be a better way! Various models have arisen, many through church and religious communities: communal living, property trusts, shared equity and collaborations, to name a few.
We invite you to gather for a half-day exploring creative housing alternatives. We are keen to start a conversation and link people with similar ideas and hopes, so come and have this conversation together!
