Join us to Confront the Crisis!

City West Housing (CWH) is playing a lead role in an advocacy campaign launched today for more affordable housing in the lead up to the NSW state election in March 2023.

CWH resident Amanda Bilson is a “human face” of the Confront the Crisis campaign to create community awareness and commitment from across the political spectrum for more action on the state’s housing affordability crisis.

Pioneering Sydney chef Tony Bilson and his wife Amanda were housed by CWH in 2016 at our then new Exordium Apartments, when financial ruin and his terminal illness left them at risk of homelessness.

In the wake of Tony’s death in 2020, Amanda is even more grateful for a safe, secure and affordable roof over her head. Learn more about her story.


Confront the Crisis is being run by the Community Housing Industry Association NSW (CHIA NSW) with the support of its industry members to highlight how many people in NSW are vulnerable to housing stress and homelessness, and the dire need for more social and affordable rental housing.

City West Housing CEO Leonie King said, “As an experienced developer and manager of affordable housing for people on very low to moderate incomes, we see the enormous need for more housing every day. A safe, secure, affordable home close to where people work or that allows them to stay connected to their community really is life changing.”

“We call on all levels of government, particularly all political parties and candidates running for the 25 March 2023 state election, to commit to helping Confront the Crisis.”
