Welcome to Shelter Tas

We are the peak body for housing and homelessness in lutruwita/Tasmania and we acknowledge the palawa/pakana peoples of lutruwita on whose land we live, work and meet.
Our vision is for affordable, appropriate, safe and secure housing for all and an end to homelessness.
Our mission is to provide a united voice for services and service users that creates a framework to effect positive change in the housing and homelessness sector.
We work to ensure that low-income and disadvantaged people in Tasmania have access to housing that is affordable, safe, secure and appropriate to their needs.

It’s Time to Have Your Say!

The consultation on the scope of the draft Tasmanian Planning Policies is now open, and Shelter Tas will be making a submission – calling for the inclusion of social and affordable housing ‘to support the economy and create liveable communities’.

It is vital that we include social and affordable housing as an integral part of Tasmania’s future infrastructure, and we will be asking for your support – so watch this space! The consultation is open until 22 October.

Shelter Tas Budget Submission

We recently completed our submission to the Tasmanian Government’s Budget Process for 2021-22 on behalf of the housing and homelessness sector. Each year, our submission draws on consultation with all our members across the state, and forms a substantial foundation for our advocacy work. Click here to read the full submission.
