The Australian Government, in close collaboration with state and territory governments, is developing a National Housing and Homelessness Plan (the Plan), to help more Australians access safe and affordable housing.
The Plan will set out a shared national vision to improve housing outcomes and help address homelessness in Australia and identify reforms needed across the responsibilities of different levels of government to achieve this vision. It will identify key short, medium and long-term reforms needed to improve outcomes across the housing spectrum and address homelessness.
The Australian Government is seeking feedback on what the Plan should cover. The Issues Paper provides a brief overview of some of the known issues in different parts of the housing and homelessness systems. It poses a series of discussion questions to give people an opportunity to provide the Government with feedback on whether these issues align with their experience.
RDA Sydney will participate in the online submission process to provide input to the Australian Government, and we are also seeking your feedback to include in our submission. We welcome you to complete some guided, short-form questions via SurveyMonkey by Friday 15th September. Please click here to have your say.
Your feedback will help the Government understand areas of focus for inclusion. This includes how governments can better work together to drive change for individuals and families impacted by housing stress and homelessness.
