Give Me Shelter – recently commissioned by Housing All Australians – is an economic report into the long-term costs of underproviding public, social and affordable housing. It shows the cost to Australian taxpayers will reach $25 billion annually by 2051 (in 2021 dollars) if nothing is done to address Australia’s chronic housing shortage, and that the cost-benefit ratio of investing in more affordable housing is double the cost outlay – for every $1 invested the taxpayer would on average receive $2 in cost savings.
The aim is to bring Australian business together for a national conversation on the importance of housing all Australians with the findings from this study. Join the author of the report, Marcus Spiller (SGS Economics & Planning) with Rob Pradolin (Founder and Director of Housing All Australians) and Leanne Edwards (Director, Policy & Research of Committee for Melbourne) to discuss the findings of Give Me Shelter in this one-hour webinar, with Q and A session.
