MAKE SOCIAL HOUSING ACCESSIBLE

The Berejiklian Government recently announced that they would not be supporting the inclusion of Accessibility Standards in the National Construction Code in NSW. This means that any new social or affordable housing built by the NSW Government doesn't have to be accessible for many people with disabilities, as well as seniors and parents with prams.

The waiting list for accessible social housing in NSW is already too long, we urgently need the NSW Government to ensure all newly built social housing is accessible and that existing social housing is regularly upgraded.

 

NSW Labor supports the Building Better Homes campaign that is fighting for accessible housing for all. You can find their website here, Follow them on twitter here, or go to their facebook here.
