    I am 65 and will be ave pension January next year. Currently I am on new start allowance which is the only income for me and my wife as she is holding provisional spouse visa and not entitled for any government payment. We are living in a rental unit and paying $1148 monthly which we can not afford it with a single Centrelink payment. Therefore, I urge your help by advising me how to get affordable housing.

    With best regards.
