Dear friend of the Tenants’ Union,
 
I am pleased to present the Tenants’ Union of NSW (TU) Annual Report for 2012-13.

You can read the report online or download it as a pdf.

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.
 
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like further information.
 
Yours sincerely
