WESTS Afternoon with Parramatta MP

Wests Afternoon With Parramatta Mp

On 18 June 2021, the team at Western Sydney Tenants’ Service (WESTS) were fortunate to meet with the Honourable Dr Geoffrey (Geoff) Lee, State Member for Parramatta and Minister for Skills and Tertiary Education. 

Our meeting was a welcome opportunity to discuss key issues impacting clients in our catchment, particularly since the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. We discussed issues including the pressure population growth is placing on the rental market in Western Sydney and free services for tenants, the difficulties of accessing Public and Community Housing, and the need for the re-opening of the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT).  

It is important that individuals, families, and community services bring awareness of tenancy issues Members of Parliament so that changes can be made to the system, making it fair and accessible for those who need it. We are grateful to Dr Lee for taking the time to listen to our concerns, and discuss how all services and sectors can come together to work for the betterment of the constituents and clients. 

WESTS will continue to advocate for the right to secure and safe housing for all and necessary changes to the legislation to prevent individuals and families from unfair provisions.
