Tenant Stories

Since mid-2018 we have been interviewing tenants about their experiences living in public housing.

Their stories, although varied, always involve hardship, resilience, and thankfulness for the safety and security public housing brings to their lives.

Tenant’s personal stories – both positive and negative – help lift the veil on public housing and remove the stigma too often associated with those who rely on government housing.

They also help influence change for more and better public housing in Victoria.

If you would like to share your story please get in touch with our Manager of Policy and Communications, Katelyn Butterss, on 9481 4500 or via email at kbutterss@vpta.org.au.
