The TU and the network of Tenants' Advice and Advocacy Services (TAASs) regularly campaign for improvements in tenants' rights and for adequately funded services for tenants.
More Bang for Your Bond
In 2015 we campaigned for increases in funding for the TAASs. Total funding to TAASs has not increased in real terms for over 12 years. However, the number of tenants has grown by 25 per cent over that time. This has left TAASs stretched thin. Increasingly, tenants are missing out on the services they need and deserve. We're calling for funding to TAASs to be increased now by $5.2 million per annum — and going forward, funding for TAAS should grow in line with the number of tenants in New South Wales.
