HousingWORKS July 2013

This time the Council to Homeless Persons and the Australasian Housing Institute combined their efforts to give their readers an opportunity to look into the future of social housing. With help from our article contributors and sponsors we have prepared an edition where readers will be able to find different points of view from landlords, tenants, social housing supporters, researches and academics. 
The full version of the journal is available for AHI Members in the Members' Only Area of the site
