There are tens of thousands of people on the waitlist for public housing in South Australia – recent data showed nearly 3000 people were flagged as category one – that’s the highest priority category.
In the private market, rental prices have soared and residential vacancy rates are tiny.
This episode features Dr Alice Clark from peak housing body Shelter SA, who has some innovative ideas about how governments can provide emergency housing – right now.
We also speak to Zita Ngor, from the Women’s Legal Service, who says more and more women are being forced to stay in violent situations because they simply can’t find anywhere else to go.
