Podcast: Housing the Homeless - The Pathway
Tuesday, 4th April 2017 at 8:26 am

Whether you think of housing as a prevention or a cure for homelessness, it is undisputable that having a stable form of shelter is imperative.

But making sure that everyone has a house is no easy feat.

Australia is currently in the middle of a housing crisis.

There is a lack of affordable housing and according to the experts there has been a lack of investment in public housing by successive governments over decades.

So how do we increase the capacity of affordable housing?

In the third and final episode of our series, Housing the Homeless: The Pathway, we talk to experts from the banking and property sectors, as well as people with lived experience to find out what needs to be done.

Featured in this episode:

  • Andrew Cairns, CEO of Community Sector Banking
  • Robert Pradolin, former general manager of Frasers Property Australia
  • Simon, who has lived experience of being homeless.
  • David Spriggs, CEO of Infoxchange, the company behind Ask Izzy.

Produced by Ellie Cooper and Wendy Williams and brought to you by Akolade, not-for-profit event specialists.
