After South Australia the project is moving its focus to New South Wales where the most acute housing problems are faced by older renters. A  Reference Committee has been organised by the NSW Federation of Housing Associations and includes a number of key agencies who are providing advice on our activities in NSW. We intend to follow the same process as has been developed in South Australia where we are conducting a research project that will culminate in a report on the state of housing for older people in NSW . It is planned that the report will be completed by late July 2017 and then launched at an event during Poverty Week in October.
