    Event description

    Community Voices Renters Forum for SouthWest Sydney

    The Sydney Alliance and Tenant's Union of NSW are organising a consultation forum in partnership with the NSW Rental Commissioner, Trina Jones. We have the opportunity to share our experiences as renters, in particular around access to rental homes, cost of living, affordability, energy, and climate.  We will be hosted at the Uniting Church in Revesby.

    his forum is intended as an opportunity for renters to share their experiences and input/feedback for the future of renting and what needs to change. While we appreciate the general interest and engagement from housing industry professionals and organisations, we are reserving places for renters. As part of the registration process, we will be asking everyone if they currently employed or have a professional connection to the housing industry. We will also be asking people whether they own an investment property.

    There will be social work masters students provide child minding. 

    This is a forum for renters: 
    Only people who currently rent their home will be registered as participants in the forums.

    Registrations not accepted from housing industry professionals
    To ensure all participants feel comfortable sharing, and to manage any conflicts of interest, we will not be accepting registrations from those who disclose they currently work or have a professional connection to the housing industry.

    Registrations may be accepted for renters who are also property investors
    Renters who own an investment property will be asked to disclose this. We will accept registrations from renters who disclose property investment, but will require them to be transparent about this during the forum.

    Please feel free to get in touch via email if you would like us to share outcomes (final report, any other relevant documentation) from the forums or if you would like to discuss further. Email:

    Who else is going to be there?

    The NSW Rental Commissioner, the department, and local Members of Parliament who have the responsibility to listen to their constituencies about their rental experiences. All members of government will be observers and invited to share short reflections at the end of the forum.
