About the workshop

Understanding our rights when renting can be challenging for most people. This workshop will answer some of the common questions that people have when renting their home. The workshop is an opportunity for you to share your ideas and experiences with other participants, so that together we can become more confident renters.

Please let us know if there is anything we can do to support your participation. You are welcome to come along with a friend or support person. Morning tea and lunch is provided for in person workshops. Online workshops are provided on zoom. We can help you use Zoom if you haven’t already.

This workshop is free to attend.

Is this workshop for me?

This workshop is for people who are currently renting.

We provide information about private rentals, community and public housing (Housing Authority). We include information for people who experience any kind of disability that impacts on their rental situation including people who are ageing or have mobility restrictions, and people living with health, neurological or mental health challenges. We can also provide tenant fact sheets in other languages and formats. Everyone who is renting is welcome in this workshop.

If you have any questions, please call or text Aimee or Donna on 0456 162 897 or email renting@shelterwa.org.au
