Affordable Housing Local Solutions Forum – Thursday 30th to Friday 31st May

28 May


Dear Bellingen Chamber of Commerce Members,

You are invited to the second annual Affordable Housing Local Solutions Forum on Thursday 30th- Friday 31st May at the Uniting Church Hall, Bellingen.

Housing affordability is a serious national concern and a big issue locally. We have been exploring new approaches to home ownership, long term rental, joint ventures and innovative developments. We understand that housing is complex and there are no easy answers – but we think that together we can make a difference!

Registration is free. You can attend one or both days.  We hope you can come.

About the forum:

The forum is action focussed with speakers, panels and workshops. We will showcase the progress that has been made locally; as well as hearing from speakers from near and far. Follow link to download the Full Program. Keynote speakers include:

  • -Adrian Pisarski, EO National Shelter
  • -Dr Gregory P Smith, Southern Cross University

Join us for our Fundraising Dinner: 

  • -Our Fundraising Dinner will be held on the Thursday evening at Cedar Bar and Kitchen Bellingen from 6.00pm. This will be an engaging evening with guest speaker, Dr Gregory P Smith. Please register through humanitix.

What the forum is and isn’t:

  • -This forum is for people who want to be part of the emerging solutions and explore what can make a difference locally.
  • -The forum is not for people who need somewhere to live right now – it’s about longer-term change. If you require crisis accommodation or support, please make contact and we will endeavour to refer you to the relevant services.

If you have questions or would like further information, please reply to this email.
