Everyone needs a home.
But in Victoria alone, 25,000 people are homeless on any given night. 82,000 people are waiting for social housing. Another million live in housing stress, paying more rent than they can afford.
There’s no doubt about it – we’re at crisis point.
But the good news is, there are solutions. By building 3,000 extra public and community housing properties each year, the State Government could relieve the pressure on the private rental market and increase the supply of affordable homes for people on low incomes.
That’s why this State election, while our politicians are listening more carefully than ever to what voters want, we’re calling on the leaders of the major parties to treat this issue with the urgency it deserves. We’re asking the Party leaders to commit to building the extra 3,000 public and community residences each year that our state needs – and we’d love for you to add your voice to the call.
Will you sign the petition calling on the leaders of the major parties to commit to building 3,000 extra public and community housing properties each year, so that every Victorian has a place to call home?
