Anglicare Australia Release Rental Affordability Snapshot
Anglicare Australia have recently released a series of national 'Rental Affordability Snapshots'. The snapshots show that there is a critical shortage of affordable rental housing across all major cities and even most regional areas of Australia. The annual Anglicare Australia Rental Affordability Snapshot shines light on just how bad the housing crisis has become with less than 1 per cent of rental housing in cities such as Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Canberra being affordable for people on a low income.
A full media release providing links to information on results for each state and territory is available from the Anglicare Australia website.
