The Victorian Government plans to replace rundown public housing at sites across Melbourne as part of a new $185 million Public Housing Renewal Program. The first stage includes the replacement of 1,100 existing social housing homes across identified renewal sites.
In 2017 Jen assisted the Department of Health and Human Services in the planning and delivery of three technical workshops. The purpose of the sessions was to gather expert advice and feedback on draft plans for the renewal of public housing in 10 Melbourne locations.
Sally Chandler Ford assisted the writing of a report on the outcomes of the workshops.
