Sustain invites you to support our cause. Become a supporter for as little as $20 per week ($1,000 per year, equivalent to four cups of coffee).

Sustain would like to increase the supply of social housing to meet the demands of people of low incomes. In some areas of NSW, the waiting list is longer than 10 years.

There are 55,000 eligible households (representing about 120,000 people) on the waiting list for social housing.

New South Wales is facing significant challenges in providing access to social housing now and into the future. These include a growing demand for housing by single person households with very low income and complex needs; and ageing and inappropriate dwellings.

The imbalance between the supply and demand for public housing makes it crucial for us to help deliver appropriate housing for those most in need.
