In Victoria alone, 25,000 people are homeless on any given night. 82,000 people are on the waiting list for public or community housing. And another million Victorians are in housing stress, paying more than they can afford in rent.
There’s no doubt about it – we’re at crisis point.
But as we know, there are solutions. By building 3,000 extra public and community homes each year, the Victorian State Government could help people off waiting lists and into homes.
The state election is fast approaching, meaning our politicians are listening more carefully than ever to what voters want. They’re vying for your vote, and know they need to take what you say seriously to have a chance of getting into government.
That’s why we’re launching this petition to the party leaders, so that we can show them just how many Victorians want them to commit to building the 3,000 public and community homes our state needs. Will you add your name to the petition now?
Together, we can show the party leaders that housing is a top-tier issue.
