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?

To Premier Daniel Andrews, Mr. Matthew Guy and Ms. Samantha Ratnam,

Everyone needs a home.

But in Victoria alone, 25,000 people are homeless on any given night. Another million live in housing stress, paying more rent than they can afford.

There’s no doubt about it – it’s at crisis point.

But the good news is, there are solutions.

Victoria needs an extra 3,000 public and community housing properties each year, to provide a housing safety net for the growing number of people struggling to stay housed in private rentals. It will mean that there is a greater supply of homes available to those on lower incomes, so that people will no longer have to languish on waiting lists for years – instead, they will have a safe and secure home.

As the leaders of the major parties, you have the power to make this happen. That’s why we, the undersigned, are calling on you to commit to building the 3,000 extra public and community residences our state needs.
