6 review of the Residential Tenancies Act, the historic mistake that sees the NTs homelessness sector underfunded and how tough it is for Territorian renters. He also spoke to Stewart Brash on ABC Alice Springs the following week, welcoming Minister Collins' remarks at the opening of the National Homelessness Conference, but pointing out that with such dire housing need in the Northern Territory, our needs are not well served by the current Federal funding. Review of Tenancy Support Programs NT Shelter observed that the work of Tenancy Support Program (TSP) providers in the Northern Territory was not well understood. In response, we contracted Catherine Holmes Consulting to undertake a review of Darwin based tenancy support programs to: explore the role of TSP officers; identify skills gaps; identify professional development and training needs of TSP officers; and for the first time gather the views and experiences of TSP clients. The review found that TSP clients had a myriad of underlying complex issues that compromised tenancies, including financial stress, dependence on public transport, mental illness, chronic disease, disability and infirmity, overcrowding, unemployment and limited employment experience, domestic and family violence and elder abuse, child protection, incarceration, alcohol and drug use and abuse and being the sole carer of grand/children.
