The TU works to make a positive difference in the lives of residential tenants and other renters in NSW, and particularly, tenants who are economically and socially disadvantaged.
We do this by:
Advocating for the reform of policies and laws affecting tenants
Undertaking strategic litigation to advance the interest of tenants
Providing support to Tenants Advice and Advocacy Services
Informing and educating tenants
The Annual Report tells you in more detail the outcomes of this work.
Here are some highlights:
Over 2,000 instances of direct information or legal advice to tenants and tenant advocates across NSW
Strategic litigation in areas such as Aboriginal social housing, procedural fairness for community housing tenants, protection of long term rights for residential park residents, and interpretation of residential tenancies law
40% growth in social media following and a 24% increase in unique visits to our resources at tenants.org.au. Over one quarter of a million people viewed the website.
New training on the Boarding Houses Act 2012
The TU is grateful for the many volunteers, members and organisations that help us in getting our work done. In particular, the TU thanks the Australian and NSW Governments for funding, which it receives through Fair Trading NSW and Legal Aid NSW.
Thank you for your support, we couldn’t do it without you.
