A new 10-year social and affordable housing strategy is set to be launched at Castlemaine Town Hall next Wednesday June 29.
The strategy will outline how community members, organisations, businesses and government can work together to address Mount Alexander Shire’s housing crisis.
My Home Network (MHN) developed the ‘Mount Alexander Shire My Home Network 10 year social and affordable housing strategy’ in collaboration with a range of local and specialist stakeholders and in consultation with Mount Alexander Shire Council.
Dhelkaya Health (formerly Castlemaine Health) CEO Sue Race said the hospital recognises the impact of housing stress on our community.
“We are proud to support and participate in the work of the My Home Network, working collaboratively with local services, government, housing specialists, community and people with lived experience of homelessness and housing stress,” Ms Race said.
Everyone is invited along to the launch, which will feature a range of MHN speakers on local housing solutions and importantly, community members will have the opportunity to sign up to one of MHN’s working groups to be “part of the housing solution”. See the Mail for the full story. Out Now.
