Advocacy campaigns - housing

Lack of safe and affordable housing

Key messages:

  • Homelessness is a serious problem affecting many people in our community.
  • We are working hard to help vulnerable people in our community who come to us for assistance, but housing demand is much greater than supply.
  • Housing should happen to everyone’.
  • We need more social and affordable rental homes to address the current housing crisis.
  • We need more homes for local communities, not for commercial profit.
  • Renters need security to create homes, build lives and raise families.
  • Renting is a normal way of life for many Australians. We need to support renters with adequate Commonwealth Rent Assistance so they have a home and stable base.
