As Australia’s housing affordability crisis continues unabated many young people remain locked out of the market. Home ownership is a distant hope, and even rental properties are proving out of reach for the growing numbers of young people trapped by low incomes.
What can be done to tap into the natural talent and energy of young people to overcome market barriers? Has policy been driven by deficit thinking and focussed limited resources on costly crisis responses that create dependence? Do current systems come at the cost of preventative responses that support living independently?
If you work with young people in policy, housing or property management and want to hear about alternative approaches to supporting young people to access housing and live their dream or if you are a young person wanting to share your ideas about what prevents you achieving your dream, this conference is for you!
An exciting mix of international, national and local presenters will challenge us to leverage the potential of young people themselves to overcome market forces, to be preferred tenants and viewed as potential future home owners in the market.
And – there will be fun and rewards!
Award winning comedian Lori Bell will feature at the conference dinner, while interstate and regional delegates will be entered into a draw to visit youth110, the world’s first crisis service to be located in a mixed tenure building that includes owner occupiers, private renters and social housing and commercial tenants.
