ACT housing crisis puts family of eight at risk of homelessness

There are 2789 Canberrans on the ACT waiting list for public housing and former Barnardo’s mother of the year and mum of seven Belinda Nunn, who will be homeless in four weeks, is one of them.

Ms Nunn has five daughters between six and 18, but has also helped raise her two nephews to her twin sister who died when the boys were young.

She came to Region Media to raise the issue of the housing crisis facing many Canberrans after she was told by Housing ACT there were simply no homes available.

“We need at least a four-bedroom home and I was told I was being put on a priority list, but I also heard there were 19 others on that list too,” Ms Nunn said.

“I’ve written plenty of letters to ministers to highlight the situation, but part of my question to Housing ACT has been how have they let it get to this situation where people are starting to become homeless, and families have to start separating in order to put a roof over their head?

“I also know of at least four or five other people who are single that are living in four or five-bedroom houses because their children have grown up or moved out.”

There is a long wait for public housing in the ACT with more than 1600 with high needs, nearly 1000 needing standard homes and around 182 assessed as a priority. According to the Community Services Directorate website, the average waiting times are 1340 days for standard housing, 867 for high needs and 267 for priority.

In response to questions from Region Media, Housing Minister Yvette Berry said there will be approximately 250 new four to six-bedroom dwellings constructed as part of the ACT Government’s 10-year ACT Housing Strategy, released in 2018.

“The demand expressed for four to six-bedroom properties on the housing and transfer registers is around 8 per cent of total demand,” Ms Berry said. “One and two-bedroom properties represent approximately 80 per cent of total demand for social housing, which is the reason for a large portion of new properties having two bedrooms.”

This will come as little relief for Ms Nunn who has been given four weeks’ notice in the private rental she currently occupies after the lease expired and has not been renewed.

“I said to all these ministers that I’m not asking for a handout, I’m asking for a hand up. Just help me get up and then I can keep moving,” she says of her situation which is having a significant mental impact on her and her family.

“I’ve never had to ask for government help until my marriage broke down two years ago,” she said.

In 2014, Belinda was named Barnardo’s ACT mother of the year for her dedication to her children and those of her twin sister. She also coaches her daughters’ netball teams and regularly helps at their schools.

Minister for Homelessness and Housing Services Rebecca Vassarotti said they had received correspondence from Ms Nunn and were in the process of responding.

“While we cannot comment on individual cases, we understand the complex challenges and difficulties that Canberrans looking for a home face,” Ms Vassarotti said.

“I want to reassure our community that there is a range of supports to help people at risk of or experiencing homelessness. The Supportive Tenancy Service is there to assist Canberrans with advice and support to help maintain their current tenancies. OneLink also refers Canberrans to other supports such as emergency food assistance and emergency accommodation.”

Ms Vassarotti said in the last financial year, 99 per cent of all new allocations to public housing and 96 per cent of transfers within public housing were made to people in greatest need.

“These results reflect our continued focus on housing those with priority and high needs to ensure social housing is allocated to those most at-risk of homelessness,” she said.

Ms Nunn said staff at Housing ACT have been very sympathetic to her situation that involves many moving parts.

The Supportive Tenancy Service can be contacted through OneLink on 1800 176 468. It’s open Monday to Friday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm.

Fun fact time!!!

Its been more than 14 months since housing has rehomed a family from an ACT refuge..

Women and children escaping family violence and abuse aren't supported by our government.

Its been 7months now for me (some family's in my refuge are in their 3rd year)

I was told to expect nothing within a year.

IN VICTORIA THEIR WAITING LISTS ARE 3-4MONTHS FOR FAMILYS IN THIS POSITION. !!!!

Wow. Some of these comments are horrendous! Self interest really does bring out the worst in people.

No-one should be forced to downsize their own home or even pressured to do so.

You may as well pass a law to prevent people from buying or building a property in the first place if it’s bigger than they need now. Heck, just force everyone into apartments. There are families living in apartments quite happily, therefore no family needs a backyard really. They don’t need them in New York or Amsterdam or London or Tokyo or Beijing.

Why give anyone a choice?

Nat Smith Nat Smith 8:28 am 21 Apr 21

I know people that are waiting for two bedroom houses for 7 years . They have not replaced civic Kingston or narrabundah apartments

Based on some of the apparently well-informed comments here about ACT public housing policies, it is truly fascinating to see the double standards at work under this government.

One of the groups hardest hit by this government’s policy of phasing out stamp duty on property sales and replacing it with ever-higher annual rates are older people on low incomes. When they complain, they are condescendingly told they should down-size to something more “appropriate” and more affordable and if that means moving away from a familiar area, breaking long-established connections and not being able to have extended family live with them or visit, then that’s just tough luck because the ACT government has clearly decided these people really don’t count – fashionable economic theories about taxation are more important.

By comparison, apparently, people who live in public homes subsidised by other people’s rates and taxes do get somewhat more care and consideration on this score. Once again, from this government, we see a weirdly contradictory mixture of hard-line economic rationalism and socialism in the one policy area.

On the broader issue of housing, there was a good report on the local ABC TV news last night which highlighted the negative impact of ACT government taxation policies on the supply of properties in the private rental market – another illustration of the gap between theory and reality under this government.

There are two vacant houses near me that have been empty for almost 2 years. They are planning on redeveloping them even though the site is just not adequate for their plans. People could have had homes with backyards actually fit for a family this entire time.

Peter Curtis Peter Curtis 2:30 pm 16 Apr 21

This did not happen overnight – it is what happens when a tory leads a party. The ALP is meant to be on the side of common people – how quaint and old fashioned – this is imapcting families everywhere – some people I know have to convert a garage into a bed sit because rents are impossible let alone buying a house. Greens you had better get onto it because Barr has duped you.

nobody nobody 1:36 pm 16 Apr 21

Why doesn’t the RiotACT ask difficult questions of the MLA’s?
For example – with 12,000 properties spread across the ACT, how is this not sufficient already, and do the existing properties just need to be better managed?
For another example – how many high income earners currently occupy public houses, as an MLA refused to move out of her public house in Yarralumla in 2005.

If Canberra has the most public housing per capita in Australia what’s the problem?

Housing should be a base human right. There’s zero reason we shouldn’t have basic public housing available to all that need it.

20 years of Labor. Enjoy being homeless

Colin Mitchell Colin Mitchell 7:27 pm 15 Apr 21

If ACT housing done their jobs and screen the people they give homes to the waiting list may not be so long I seen ACT housing home treated like a dumping groups and if ACT housing checked some of the fraudulent applications they get from some people. After all it's a tax payer that helps these people have a cheap home that gets trashed by some people. I have been in a lot of these homes as a removalist over the years and I think it's a disgrace the way these homes are treated.

    Rhonda Arnall Rhonda Arnall 1:26 am 16 Apr 21

    Colin Mitchell well said.

    Lauryn Roberts Lauryn Roberts 8:23 am 16 Apr 21

    Colin Mitchell my friend been waiting for a 3bdr house since she had her baby- (he’s in school now -5years old) still waiting for a 3bed so he can get his own room- there’s an older sister who’s 11 and needs her own space as she grows up too...

    So 5 years and waiting...

    Colin Mitchell Colin Mitchell 9:01 am 16 Apr 21

    Lauryn Roberts I have a son living with a woman in a housing house and she is on a sole parent pension sacked up with my son on the dole that shouldn't be living there as a couple this is what kills it for others people that need it but ACT housing let them get away with it.

    Jenny McInnes Jenny McInnes 10:03 pm 22 Apr 21

    Colin Mitchell so insightful! What part of their jobs haven't ACT housing done?

    Jenny McInnes Jenny McInnes 10:11 pm 22 Apr 21

    Lauryn Roberts unfortunately with people with mindsets like Aunty Betty and lack of funding your friend is likely to be waiting while.

Rhonda Arnall Rhonda Arnall 7:27 pm 15 Apr 21

there had been a vacent home opposite me since December. another 1 three houses down thats vacent for more than a month. ive rang government dozen ens of times about this. and they were still vacent yesterday'.

    Rhonda Maxwell Rhonda Maxwell 9:45 pm 15 Apr 21

    I think it depends on where those properties are located. Maybe they have asbestos? Or are going to be demolished? Or they may still have tenants who are, for whatever reason, not able to live there?

    Rhonda Arnall Rhonda Arnall 1:25 am 16 Apr 21

    Rhonda Maxwell they are not deing demolished as people live either side. one has been remodeled in the kitchen etc. if it was a private resident and a real estate agent was managemmning it you would have given them the sack .

    Lauryn Roberts Lauryn Roberts 8:21 am 16 Apr 21

    apparently the new contractor isn’t much better than the last. Things still taking forever to be done

    Lea Powell Lea Powell 10:09 am 16 Apr 21

    Lauryn Roberts yes! This is absolutely true. The contractor is abysmal.

    Jenny McInnes Jenny McInnes 9:57 pm 22 Apr 21

    Rhonda Maxwell yes, there could be a whole range of reasons. Sometimes a tenant could be away for a period of 3 months+ with very valid reasons.

    Sometimes they may not be govt properties...

    Jenny McInnes Jenny McInnes 9:58 pm 22 Apr 21

    Rhonda Arnall how do you know what is being done inside, there could be alot of work needing to be done.

    Jenny McInnes Jenny McInnes 10:01 pm 22 Apr 21

    Rhonda Arnall so you have rang housing a "dozens" of times. What are you ringing them every few days! 😳🥴

    Rhonda Arnall Rhonda Arnall 1:28 am 23 Apr 21

    Jenny McInnes i do not ring ever few days 0 it is appropriately 20 odd weeks since 1 of them has been vacent. that could have been a home for some one needing emergency housing. for at leadt 15 weeks.

Tracy Hitchins Tracy Hitchins 6:52 pm 15 Apr 21

I can understand it would be hard to leave your family home, but so many parents are left in the home they raised their kids in once the kids have grown and moved out, there needs to be a different system to make it fair for all who require housing assistance

    Betty Meiksa Betty Meiksa 7:16 pm 15 Apr 21

    Tracy Hitchins aunty Betty disagrees. People live in their homes and their homes hold precious memories. I wouldnt like to be told I had to get out of my home just because my chil/ren have left home. It is so different now to when we were applying for government housing. The Government were building lots of houses and people waited 3 years or less fir a house. Now, the government doesnt give as much to financial building of as many houses. The waiting lists are longer, if you have over a certain amount of savings, you dont qualify. I have lived in my present home for 41 years. I would not like someone to come and tell me to downsize and give my home to other people.

    The solution lays with provision of more government houses. The solution is not in the sacraficing of other peoples homes to solve the problem. To make one group happy, as usual, older people are seen as dispensible and their feelings dont matter.

    Lea Powell Lea Powell 7:24 pm 15 Apr 21

    Betty Meiksa well said! Here’s the truth! I can honestly say in my own experience that it has nothing to do with the Ministers, it’s about the staff at HACT. They couldn’t organise a shit fight in a swimming pool. They are useless, and couldn’t give a rats about tenants.

    They lie, delay and do everything they can to keep out of trouble at the expense of tenants.

    Jennifer Moriarty Jennifer Moriarty 7:28 pm 15 Apr 21

    Betty Meiksa If you don't OWN your home and the government does you shouldn't expect to be able to stay in it just for sentimental reasons or because you think you should.

    Tracy Hitchins Tracy Hitchins 7:32 pm 15 Apr 21

    Betty Meiksa it’s a hard one, I would hate to be forced out of my home because I no longer need the space, especially if you have been there for a long time, you make it a home and do the gardens etc, but at the end of the day public housing is renting and everyone who rents, housing or private, unfortunately have to move on at some stage. Finding the right answer that works for all those who need assistance is not simple

    Betty Meiksa Betty Meiksa 7:45 pm 15 Apr 21

    Jennifer Moriarty the whole idea of government housing is to give people somewhere to live with some sort permanence when they couldnt afford other alternatives. Your view suggests no hope for anyone seeking government housing except to accept it as nothing more then a temporary arrangement. Your comment suggests that the homeless shouldnt get comfortable if given a home, dont feel safe if you are given a home because at anytime, the government should kick you out if another family comes along and they need the house. So much compassion.

    Rosie Lorne Rosie Lorne 8:24 pm 15 Apr 21

    Betty Meiksa Totally agree with you.

    When my son became homeless, I was full of despair. So was he and so were his kids.

    It is a dreadful situation for everyone this happens to.

    But it has nothing to do with me owning my own home. Nothing. There is no reason why I should be forced out of my home to fix a problem created by mismanagement and by inadequate social security payments.

    It is about insufficient acquisition of housing and a growing need. Allocation of houses is not transparent either. Ask how they decide who gets the next house..... you will not be told the criteria.

    Not enough homes are available for people trying to live on government pensions. People are living in poverty in the ACT. Private rent is almost the highest in the country.

    Kerry Crampton Kerry Crampton 8:46 pm 15 Apr 21

    Betty Meiksa but it’s not your house! You were allocated a house based on your needs at the time but you no longer need it. This is one of the reasons the list is so long....

    Sandra Gray Sandra Gray 9:04 pm 15 Apr 21

    if u dont need a 3/4 bedroom house u should move to a smaller place

    Sam McCracken Sam McCracken 11:18 pm 15 Apr 21

    Betty Meiksa I didn’t get that feeling at all from Jennifer’s comment. She’s saying that you should continue your tenancy agreement with ACT Housing but in a more appropriately sized dwelling. A parent with 1 child shouldn’t be in a 3 bedroom house just as a single person with no children shouldn’t be in a dwelling with more than 1 or 2 bedrooms. It’s not about kicking people out of safe accommodation, it’s about ensuring the appropriate sized accommodation is allocated to the right people/families.

    Lauryn Roberts Lauryn Roberts 8:19 am 16 Apr 21

    Tracy Hitchins welcome to private rent-market.. . Oh sorry need to move in a family member you have 3 months to vacate. Thanks....

    They don’t own the house or land they are renting.

    Lea Powell Lea Powell 10:07 am 16 Apr 21

    Kerry Crampton you need to really have a good knowledge base of your topic if you want to stand up and say what you are saying.

    Clearly, you are wrong.

    The reason the list is long include the following actual reasons

    1) Federal government policy regarding social security payments for the underprivileged not meeting need in Canberra. There are several policy areas involved here..( neoliberalism)

    2) local government policy mismanagement, of social housing not detecting a growing need, and maintaining stock levels at exactly the same figure for over twenty years, ( neoliberalism)

    3). Twenty years ago there were 4 homes of 6 beds or more. Two were lost in the 2003 fires. Currently, there are 60+ homes within that same category.

    Clearly, the issue isn’t about people staying too long in homes. The issue is an always has been about misunderstanding need trends, and preparing and future proofing for those needs.

    The criteria for eligibility is strict and reflects neoliberal approaches no matter which government is in power. As with the UK neoliberalism spawned massive poverty for certain groups of people, and we are seeing that here, now.

    Lea Powell Lea Powell 10:08 am 16 Apr 21

    Sam McCracken ensuring the appropriate sized dwelling is allocated has nothing to do with limiting bedrooms

    Sam McCracken Sam McCracken 10:20 am 16 Apr 21

    Lea Powell that’s exactly what it means, obviously individual cases should be considered (ie. elderly, mobility issues etc). But why should a single person or a couple who’s children have grown up and moved out be entitled to a large multi-bedroom house when families are homeless and being separated? The government owns those houses, not the people occupying them and therefore should be moved to a dwelling which suits their circumstances at the time of their, I assume, annual assessment. It’s a harsh reality, but it’s even more harsh to separate families or have children sleeping in cars because of a lack of affordable housing.

    Victoria Tye Victoria Tye 10:37 am 16 Apr 21

    Its the reality. You don’t own the home, it’s not yours (despite any connection to the property). It’s government assistance which you are no longer entitled to, as harsh as that is.

    If you no longer require the space provided to you; you need to downsize to make the larger house available for someone who does.

    It’s akin to welfare payments; what you receive is tailored to your circumstances to ensure provisions are adequately dispersed.

    Lea Powell Lea Powell 10:50 am 16 Apr 21

    Sam McCracken not all elderly or other wise couples should be in single bedroom apartments. A lot of elderly couples these days have extended family who they care for and or visit them . Relegating them to a one bedroom unit because of an arbitrary descriptor set by an outsider Does Not consider their needs at all. For example, someone I know has recently separated from their partner, and lives interstate, but, returns fortnightly to have full access and parental responsibility of three small children. This is done through the elderly parents home. If that parent were relegated to a one bedroom apartment this could not happen.

    Also consider the vast numbers of grandparents who are solo but have access to grandchildren because of child protection issues!

    The old thought of one bedroom per couple is dead and gone. In a day and age where families rely so heavily upon family for babysitting and emergent care and keeping busy is so integral to abating the onset of dementias, your concept is out of place and so belittling to the elderly!

    Sam McCracken Sam McCracken 12:39 pm 16 Apr 21

    Lea Powell errr...did you not read the part where I specifically said individual cases should be looked at on a case-by-case basis for example, the elderly, those with mobility issues. Perhaps rein in your attack until you’ve read my comment properly.

    Victoria Tye Victoria Tye 1:10 pm 16 Apr 21

    Sam 🤦‍♀️ 😂

    Lea these situations also shouldn’t require a 4 bedroom house for occasional care.

    Lea Powell Lea Powell 1:15 pm 16 Apr 21

    Sam McCracken the ACT government has a specific policy regarding this, and no longer follows your view, deeming that grandparents and others do have rights in this regard. In an age where keeping the elderly busy and fully engaged with families and with community they no longer house people on the basis you want.

    Sam McCracken Sam McCracken 2:55 pm 16 Apr 21

    Lea Powell please stop aiming your comments at me like I’m completely responsible for the current housing mess that Canberra is in.

    Lea Powell Lea Powell 3:53 pm 16 Apr 21

    Sam McCracken I am not directing responsibility to you personally. You are the one making some horrid and inequitable suggestions here, as if you as a citizen have every right to do so. I would much prefer that instead of making broad statements that you think should be followed by all, that you actually took some time to understand and acknowledge the issues ( often multiple issues) that face tenants both coming into housing and during their tenancies as routine behaviour.

    Yes, we are all aware of the housing shortage, but perhaps you need to acknowledge that it is both long term HACT management and the successive irresponsible contractors that have a greater culpability here than tenants do.

    Sam McCracken Sam McCracken 8:15 pm 16 Apr 21

    Lea Powell agree to disagree then. We clearly see this from 2 different points of view, but if you re-read your comments you will see that you are, in fact, making a personal attack on me because you can’t see another point of view. Have a lovely day.

    Jaana Surakka Jaana Surakka 11:16 pm 17 Apr 21

    Lea Powell while throwing around your ‘broad statements’ argument. Please refer back to your comments. I see a ‘horrid and inequitable suggestion’ made regarding all staff at HACT 🤷🏼‍♀️.

    Jenny McInnes Jenny McInnes 10:14 pm 22 Apr 21

    Betty Meiksa memories are in your brain

    Betty Meiksa Betty Meiksa 6:07 am 23 Apr 21

    Jenny McInnes I never said I was in governnent housing. I was once but have been in private home for 41 years. My point was. I would hate to be told to get out of my home and give it to someone else. All I have been reading the lack of compassion from a lot rge comments made.

    Jenny McInnes Jenny McInnes 6:17 am 23 Apr 21

    My appoligies Aunty Betty Meiksa I should have read more throughly and not ASSUMED you were in govt accommodation.

    Betty Meiksa Betty Meiksa 6:34 am 23 Apr 21

    Jenny McInnes all good. We are all entitled to our own opinions. I just feel deeply for people whi coukd lose their homes. Our homes are our sactuary, our safe places. I know people dont own the government houses but their homes are no less to them as ours are to us. It is just sad when people have lived a long time in one place then told to move. I know the legalities of government housing. It is still sad abd I am sure most people would not like to experience being told to move out. A sad set of circumstances facing many

    Jenny McInnes Jenny McInnes 6:37 am 23 Apr 21

    Lea Powell just because extended family "rely" on grandparents for unpaid child care does not mean it is housing ACT responsibility to provide extra accommodation for those children.

    While I agree with your comment about dementia - where do you expect (all of this) the funding to come from?

    While the "thought of one bedroom per couple is dead and gone" how many people on low incomes in the private market do actually have these same expectations? Is it because they do not get a subsisded rent?

    The access of children - the friend you are talking about. If their parent was not in govt housing at all, what would they do? Housing has limited resources.

    Lea, how do you see the govt funding ALL the services that need to be funded?

    I see that ONLY those MOST in need of welfare receive it. The others support themselves, yes it can difficult and at times quite hard. Many do it.

    So if it means a single person is living in a 3 or 4 bedroom govt house, yes they should move to smaller accommodation in my oppinion so a family who is in urgent need of accomodation can have a home. Not have empty rooms for vistors, childcare etc

    Jenny McInnes Jenny McInnes 6:48 am 23 Apr 21

    Betty Meiksa I do understand that. However with such a housing crisis and so many families homeless or facing homelessness, there has to be some hard decisions made. A large majority of people in govt accomodation are receiving a rental rebate, so they are a little better off financially than those in private rental. They also have secure of tenure which those in the private market don't. Property condition and maintance is another issue.

    So given this, it is not unreasonable to ask when they are no longer are entitled to the accommodation size they are in they be relocated a smaller property. So another family who is in urgent need can have accommodation.

    Betty Meiksa Betty Meiksa 7:29 am 23 Apr 21

    Jenny McInnes I am sure many will be willing to move but I think they should also be given the choice to choose. Overall, I believe there will be no easy solutions. No real winners here

    Lea Powell Lea Powell 7:49 am 23 Apr 21

    Jenny McInnes excuse me? How many families who are not on low incomes in this country receive welfare and numerous handouts to basically bribe them to vote the current government back in?

    The welfare budget in this country for people actually in dire need is minimal. The remainder, that going to middle classes is astronomical.

    Yeah let’s reform welfare to those who need it.

    Jenny McInnes Jenny McInnes 7:40 pm 23 Apr 21

    Lea Powell how much is this mimimal welfare budget ?

    And whatever you did, you are excused.

Lauryn Roberts Lauryn Roberts 6:31 pm 15 Apr 21

People need to downsize and let other families use houses with the rooms and yards for their kids to grow up.

The but the kids visit for holidays with grandkids isn’t really a fair excuse.

    Lauryn Roberts Lauryn Roberts 6:58 pm 15 Apr 21

    i guess trying to encourage people to not have large families...

    I’m stuck in a 2 bdr because my kids were same sex and 2 years apart. I ended up in Loungroom and giving each kid a room. 😂

    One has since moved to her fathers 3bdr govy house... still only one kid.

    Yards are a thing if the past. 😞

    Don’t miss lawn moving.

    Lauryn Roberts Lauryn Roberts 7:00 pm 15 Apr 21

    Housings invested in so many 1/2bdr in unit /appartment buildings that have gone up I’m surprised they need more.

    Coombs/Taylor/Throsby/amaroo

    Lauryn Roberts Lauryn Roberts 7:03 pm 15 Apr 21

    i know someone waiting for a 3bdr for umm 4 years... and she has an older girl and then had a boy, he’s in school—-

    The kids are needing their own space esp as they arnt the same sex and know of a 3bdr house in the suburb she wants to stay in due to school with one person living there. The kids are all grown up

    Just makes you wonder...

    Kerry Crampton Kerry Crampton 8:43 pm 15 Apr 21

    Lauryn Roberts the problem is, many of those people down want to move because they are “settled” there. Some people are so selfish, they really should be forced to downsize but I guess they can’t unless they get the police involved.

    Ruth Donnellan Ruth Donnellan 9:57 pm 15 Apr 21

    Kerry Crampton the police can't force people out of properties, only if they've been evicted and don't leave.

    Lauryn Roberts Lauryn Roberts 8:18 am 16 Apr 21

    Kerry Crampton today no one gets to settle. Any idea how many times your forced to move if you don’t own your place. Government property shouldn’t be any different

    Chris Ellis Chris Ellis 9:03 am 16 Apr 21

    Lauryn Roberts victim blaming?
