Coronavirus Response Updates

HAAG is taking steps to protect the safety of our clients, members and staff during this pandemic. We are advocating to stop all evictions and accomodate vulnerable older people as part of the public health response.

We have adjusted our service according to changing government guidelines. See this post for more details.

HAAG sent this letter to Victorian Ministers for Consumer Affairs, Housing and Planning, asking them to reinstate the state’s emergency COVID renting laws, and in particular the eviction moratorium, as an urgent measure to avoid exposing older Victorians to a risk of eviction and homelessness during the pandemic.


We are currently doing a mix of working from home and face-to-face work.  We are an “essential service” however the Ross House building is still closed to the public, and we have adjusted our service according to changing government guidelines.  See this post for more details.

In response to the latest COVID restrictions, HAAG has signed this joint letter with the Renters and Housing Union in support of assistance for older renters, casual workers and homeless people.
