Last year’s Federal Budget missed a crucial chance to invest in social housing to help alleviate the homelessness and housing affordability crisis.

But you can help make a difference in the upcoming budget.

We’re asking you to sign this petition to Treasurer Josh Frydenberg urging him to commit funding for social housing.

An expansion of social housing will give all Australians a fair go, balancing the housing market, providing families with security and creating jobs.

  • More than a million low income Australians are in housing stress: a small blow like a rent increase, can push those households into homelessness.
  • The most common reasons people seek the help of homelessness services are financial or housing crisis, or because they are fleeing family and domestic violence.
  • This issue impacts hundreds of thousands of Australians and their families. 290,500 Australians sought help from specialist homelessness services in 2019-20.
  • Building social housing will mean everyone will be able to stay housed when they hit tough times and the ability to bounce back from a set back.

With homelessness expected to rise by nine per cent this year, immediate action is necessary.

The Federal Government needs to invest in housing security for all Australians.
