Social Housing Tenants
The Tenants’ Union of Queensland (TUQ) provides services to and represents the interests of all Queensland tenants, including public and community housing tenants (social housing tenants).
We work with social housing tenants to identify housing policy and law reform issues affecting public and community housing tenants and use a range of strategies to advocate tenant concerns.
The Tenants’ Union provides tenancy advice for social housing tenants in Queensland and also seeks to advocate for better tenancy laws and housing policies.
The Queensland government previously funded the Tenants’ Union to undertake specific work with social housing tenants and to advocate their concerns. However the state government cut funding for this work in December 2012. However the Tenants’ Union will continue to monitor issues affecting social housing tenants.
