Call for contributions
Once again the Australasian Housing Institute and the Council to Homeless Persons are combining their resources to publish a joint edition of their two publications. This will be the June/July 2018 "Homelessness and Social Housing Workforce Development" joint edition of HousingWORKS and Parity.
The issue of workforce development has been squarely on the agenda of the homelessness and social housing sectors since the 2008 Homelessness White Paper, The Road Home, identified workforce development as a key national priority in policy responses to homelessness.
This edition of Parity and HousingWORKS will examine the issues relevant to the development of both the current and the future homelessness and social housing sector’s workforce.
Please send us your article by COB Friday, 12 July 2018. Read our Contribution Guide.
