Event description

Description

Western Sydney has been described as the engine room of the NSW economy, a fast-growing and vibrant region. Western Sydney’s growth presents both opportunities and challenges. While there is an increase in prosperity there is also an alarming trend of a rise in homelessness, with housing affordability still a significant issue.

Join Western Sydney Community Forum and Wentworth Community Housing, along with our host Western Sydney University, as we launch Home in Western Sydney, a paper that provides a snapshot of affordable housing and homelessness across our region, and bring together well-known experts to provide a diverse range of views about the future of housing in Western Sydney.

Invited speakers include:

  • The Hon Susan Henderson MP - Assistant Minister for Social Services, Housing and Disability Services (tbc)
  • The Hon Doug Cameron MP - Shadow Minister for Housing and Homelessness
  • Professor Peter Shergold - Chancellor, Western Sydney University
  • Wendy Hayhurst - CEO, Community Housing Industry Association
  • Dr Tim Williams - Australasia Cities Leader, ARUP
  • Joanna Quilty - CEO, NCOSS
  • Karen Walsh - CEO, Shelter NSW
  • Dr Andy Marks - Assistant Vice-Chancellor, Western Sydney University
  • Stephen McIntyre - CEO, Wentworth Community Housing
  • Billie Sankovic - CEO, Western Sydney Community Forum
