Safe and suitable housing is essential for better health outcomes for Aboriginal people. Congress’ Healthy Housing Officer visits houses in Ntaria, Utju, Ltyentye Apurte, Mutitjulu and Amoonguna to collect information about housing repairs.
We want to know if all of the health hardware in your house is working properly, things like taps, sinks, drains, air-conditioning, electrical issues and any other problems.
Using this information Congress will make an evidence base and a report to advocate for prompt maintenance and repairs, housing solutions and better health outcomes for our mob.
Acacia Lewis is the Congress Healthy Housing Officer and she will be happy to talk to you about any housing issues and help you report anything in your house that needs to be repaired.
