The Council To Homeless Persons along with a number of other social justice and housing organisations is running a lobbying campaign during the state election called It Takes A Home. They are calling on the state government to:

  • Commit to the federal government target to halve homelessness by 2020
  • Deliver affordable homes
  • Ensure a better start for children and young people experiencing homelessness
  • End the cycle of homelessness by providing support where it is needed, for as long as it is needed
  • Invest in the homelessness workforce delivering services to those in need.

They are asking people to lobby the media and candidates and to organise candidates forums in their local electorate. For more information check out- www.ittakesahome.org.au/about
