I am delighted to announce that this year Link Housing celebrates 35 years of service to the community. It is a significant milestone that we will mark with a very special End of Year Party in November this year.
Reaching 35 years does not mean we now get to rest. The number of people experiencing housing stress continues to increase and the supply of appropriate housing for people who are on low incomes is not keeping pace. As I am known to say, “we must do more.”
Link Housing is working with local councils, state government and our partners to advocate for a national housing strategy and give all Australians the basic right to a safe and sustainable home. We are also working within the community and partnering with local services to solve more immediate issues.
There is a lot of work to be done and we are absolutely committed to doing it. We have done a lot in the past five years and will we do more int the next. I invite you to take a look at our video from five years ago when we celebrated our 30th anniversary.
I look forward to saying hello again soon.
Andrew McAnulty – CEO, Link Housing
