HousingWORKS/Parity November 2018:
"Marginal Housing: Where to Now?" Joint Edition
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 November 2018 "Marginal Housing: Where to Now?" joint edition of HousingWORKS and Parity.
Marginal housing has become an important issue because of the ongoing crisis in access to affordable housing and accommodation. The issue of marginal housing is a sometimes a “hidden” issue that only occasionally results in any public awareness or in media and policy responses to it.
Increasing numbers of people excluded from the housing market, people who are unable to access or afford private rental or who are ineligible for, or waiting for the ever-diminishing supply of social housing, are being forced into insecure marginal housing, that is, into boarding and rooming houses (both registered and unregistered), caravan parks and different kinds of shared accommodation.
The edition will build on previous publications and research that looked at boarding and rooming houses, caravan parks and the vicissitudes of insecure private rental. This edition Parity and Housing Works aims to examine the different forms and types of marginal housing as well as the responses of both government and services to the issues faced by people forced into marginal housing.
