More than 100 delegates from Belgium, France, Germany, Japan, Spain, the UK, USA and Australia gathered in Melbourne between 5-6 November 2015 to examine the role homeshare programs can play in tackling some of the intergenerational challenges of ageing populations, housing affordability and social and disability services.
The congress was run by the Homeshare Australia and New Zealand Alliance (HANZA) with the theme of ‘Homeshare ticks the boxes’.
The two-day Congress featured policy makers, leading demographers, social commentators and homeshare practitioners and participants. As part of his official opening address the Hon. Martin Foley MP, Victorian Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing announced that Victoria would trial the homeshare model in public housing in 2016.
