Call on our leaders to fix the broken housing system

There’s no doubt about it – our housing system is broken. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

We’ve put together a plan for how our governments can fix the problem, but we need our leaders to take that plan and make it a reality. And the only way they’ll do this, is if they know that countless Australians are calling on them to do so.


Check out our solutions for mending the broken system below, and then sign the petition.

  • Support for first home-buyers, by setting the tax system to make it fairer for ordinary Australians wanting to buy a home.
  • Develop a National Housing strategy to meet Australia’s identified shortfall of 500,000 social and affordable rental homes.
  • A better deal for renters, by changing the tenancy laws to protect tenants against evictions, unfair rent rises, discrimination and landlords who refuse to maintain properties.
  • Immediate relief for Australians in chronic rental stress, by increasing Commonwealth Rent Assistance.
  • A plan to end homelessness, to halve homelessness in five years and end it in 10.

All housing problems are connected. Renters, home-buyers, people struggling to find a safe roof over their heads – what happens to one of us, affects everybody.
