Public Housing Debt, Sky High

Wednesday 19th July / presented by Paul Van Lieshout Hunt

The need for housing in WA is increasing and out of control.

Past Housing Authority tenants in the metropolitan area owe more than $18 million and in regional WA, $28 million.

Past tenants have contributed to a blossoming debt of more than $55 million for unpaid rent, repair bills and more.

To help shed light on this is Shelter WA, an independent organization that works towards promoting affordable and secure housing in WA for disadvantaged Western Australians.

Stephen Hall from ShelterWA spoke to Paul Hunt on The Mag.
