Welcome to the first issue of Onboard. This is the email bulletin of the Boarding Houses Education Project, co-ordinated by the Tenants' Union of NSW. This Project, implemented after the passing of the Boarding Houses Act 2012, was established to provide good, general knowledge of boarding houses law across the community that includes residents, community workers and other people with a professional interest in tenancy.
As promised to those of you whom I have met, this email bulletin has been developed to fill a gap in information resources on the implications of the Boarding Houses Act. The email's primary audience is community workers, tenant advocates and legal practitioners who work with residents living in boarding houses.
The aim of this email is threefold:
I hope you find the email useful and informative. Please let me know if you do. Also, let me know if you would like to include information in the next email.
- to inform community workers of residents' rights under the Act
- to hear from you about any concerns that are being raised by boarding house residents regarding their accommodation
- to hear about the outcome of any action, by either you or a resident, in regard to boarding house accommodation
If you don't wish to receive any more emails, click unsubscribe or let me know, and I will remove you from the list.
