Homelessness NSW State Election Platform 2018-19

Monday, 21 January 2019

Homelessness NSW is pleased to release its State Election Platform 2018-2019. 

This platform calls for: 

  1. An Affordable Housing Strategy that includes the delivery of 5,000 new social housing dwellings a year until 2026.
  2. A 10-year plan to end homelessness that includes no exits into homelessness, systemic funding of supportive housing approaches, a focus on ending inner city homelessness and a focus on prevention particularly for young people and women and children experiencing domestic and family violence.
  3. Enhancements to the Specialist Homelessness System that addresses gaps created by the Going Home Staying Home reforms.

We call upon all parties to commit to these priorities in the lead up to the NSW election, and to work alongside us in delivering them.
