We have reached the end of our campaign and ROOF US FIRST would like to say a big thank you and good bye for helping us so much with raising awareness about the growing crisis of rental affordability.
We started off as a small campaign that was created because I was quite shocked about how long I had to wait at Central Station (30 MINUTES!) just for a train back home (hint: The Government also needs to improve the T3 Bankstown Line please!). I decided to check the house prices closer to uni to see if maybe I moved out of home, I wouldn’t have to wait that long to get home. Surprisingly, all the rent prices were $500+ in the Kensington area and my dream of living away from home were destroyed. This caused me to start a campaign to raise awareness about the rental affordability of Australia, and after much research I realised that a lot more people were suffering in the rental market than I had ever thought of!
It was all thanks to you guys, that I was able to generate so much positivity and feedback through this campaign and I hope that I have increased your knowledge on the ideas of the growing crisis of rental affordability. We have reached a total of 1,528 people on our Facebook page, generated a lot of conversation on our Twitter page and more importantly, gained recognition from social hubs that advocate rental affordability in Australia. If you are currently suffering from rental stress or feel like you need help, don’t ever hesitate to contact us through this blog OR visit Anglicare Sydney for some help! Always utilise the power of social media and let the world know how you are suffering!
Until then, thank you for tuning in to our campaign, and sincerely, I thank every single one of you.
