Prof Julian Disney and Kate Colvin, the spokesperson for the Everybody’s Home campaign will brief the National Press Club about the community housing, social and homelessness sector plans to transform the national housing system.

They will argue that current responses to housing affordability focus too much on first home ownership, ignoring the downstream affect on a growing generation of renters and those under housing stress.

They will present a coherent and integrated Housing Plan that will challenge all political parties to rethink housing policy and embrace new models of development, ownership and support.
