VCOSS has released their 2022 VCOSS Victorian Election Platform.
The work of the 59th Parliament has been shaped by COVID; both the virus itself and the associated health, social and economic challenges. The pandemic tested us in previously unimaginable ways.
And as this document attests, it was Victoria’s lowest income earners, people from multicultural backgrounds and those with existing health concerns that bore the brunt of these challenges.
But through it all, significant social policy reforms were pursued. Treaty, the Mental Health Royal Commission, changes to tenancy laws, ongoing reforms to family violence, the Big Housing Build and an embrace of Housing First, new education equity measures, voluntary assisted dying, supervised injecting rooms, LGBTIQ+ equality measures. The list goes on.
