Have you experienced the need to move in the last 3 years?

Have you lived in the same private rental for more than 8 years?

If so, we’d love your help to design what policy and other conditions need to be in place for you and others to gain and maintain secure occupancy as you age. By secure occupancy, we mean the extent to which renters can make a home and stay there for reasonable periods of if they wish to, provided they meet their obligations.

We believe landlords have a critical role to play in changing the value of renting in Australia, especially for people 50+ who are renting. We believe policy needs to be developed and tested with landlords and renters.

How you’ll help us

We are seeking three 1 hour sessions with you between now and early next year.


Assist testing our ideas

The method we use to do this is called prototyping. We will create a simulated policy (based on insights we already have) to test with you and others.



Give us your feedback

We want to hear your feedback – what works, doesn’t work, where the gaps are etc.


Redraft, re-test, repeat

Taking your insights into account we redraft the policy, test it again with you and so on until we reach a version that works.



Wider Review

We can then take our refined policy to a wider number of people for their response.
