Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander housing roundtable report 2011

17 and 18 May 2011

Representatives from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) and mainstream housing organisations and peak bodies met in Brisbane in July 2010, under the auspices of National Shelter, to discuss a range of housing issues facing ATSI peoples and to develop possible solutions. Following this roundtable we released a policy statement which calls for an urgent injection of resources to address the housing needs of ATSI peoples. A follow-up meeting in May 2011 reaffirmed the key messages in this statement and explored some of the issues in more depth.
