Indigenous Housing Policy Needs Indigenous Voices

The recent $250 million NSW budget boost for Aboriginal housing brings with it a need to consult Aboriginal communities about how this policy can best reflect their needs. With housing shortages predicted to increase to 90,901 dwellings across Australia by 2031, of which 65,000 are in NSW, it is evident that much work needs to be done in addressing housing as one of the 16 key socio-economic targets in the Closing the Gap Strategy. We were joined by Dr Campbell Drake, Senior Lecturer at University of Technology Sydney’s School of Architecture representing UTS’s Indigenous Infrastructure and Sustainable Housing Alliance.
