      AHURI RESEARCH WEBINAR SERIES

      Housing and housing assistance pathways with pets

      Wednesday 3 March at 11am (AEDT)
      Register For the AHURI Webinar Here

      Australia is a nation of companion animal owners with over 60 per cent of households including a pet that occupies an increasingly significant role as a family member. However, despite the high value that households place on pets, and evidence of the benefits that pets bring to individuals and broader society, the right of households to keep pets varies markedly depending on the housing sector and tenure within which they live.

      This free webinar will present findings from a forthcoming AHURI research project — Housing and housing assistance pathways with companion animals: risks, costs, benefits and opportunities — led by Prof Wendy Stone, Swinburne University of Technology. This study investigates the policy and regulatory settings that shape housing options available to households that own pets. It considers housing and housing assistance contexts nationally across tenures, sectors (e.g. ownership, private rental housing), emergency/crisis accommodation and for diverse population groups receiving income and housing assistance support.

      The 90 min webinar will include a research presentation, followed by an industry response and an audience Q&A facilitated by AHURI’s Executive Director, Dr Michael Fotheringham.
