The Northern Rivers may be the holiday destination of choice for Christmas but for the thousands of people experiencing homelessness it is a region crying out for action.
Speaking about our current Housing Campaign, Social Futures chief executive Tony Davies says voters have the power to influence change and with the New South Wales state election in March, now is the time to act.
“The housing crisis on the Northern Rivers has really become a key issue for voters, and this region has a history of lifting its voice to campaign for important change. The Northern Rivers people have big hearts and they will vote accordingly,” said Mr Davies.
The festive season isn’t so merry for many, according to North Coast Community Housing chief executive John McKenna who says anyone can find themselves homeless in the current housing crisis and this is the most challenging time of year for those without a home.
“The housing situation in our region is at crisis point.” Mr McKenna said. “Thousands of locals will be spending Christmas without a home, but there is something we can all do. By contacting your MPs and candidates now you are saying very clearly, everyone deserves a home, and this is what the Northern Rivers will be voting on.”
