Investigating affordability issues, rent-setting frameworks & work participation in NSW Social Housing

The growing evidence of rental stress and affordability issue among people living in social housing in the last decade contradicts the purpose of social housing itself and indicates that may be potentially deep and inherent problems that sits within the social housing and the system that governs it. The aim is to investigate the existence and extent of affordability issues among social housing tenants, as well as (dis)incentives to work among social housing tenants who are in, or wants to be, in employment.
