Our vision is for affordable, appropriate, safe and secure housing for all and an end to homelessness.
Our mission is to provide a united voice for services and service users that creates a framework to effect positive change in the housing and homelessness sector.
We work to ensure that low-income and disadvantaged people in Tasmania have access to housing that is affordable, safe, secure and appropriate to their needs.

The latest Rental Affordability Index has been released and has found that unfortunately little has changed since the last report, and after Sydney, Hobart is still the least affordable city for renters in Australia (due to low incomes relative to rental costs).
