Welcome to Shelter

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.
