Victoria is falling behind on social housing – social housing homes as a proportion of all households is 3.2 per cent, well below the national average of 4.5 per cent.
In this report, the Housing Peaks Alliance calls on the Victorian Government to develop a 10-year social housing plan. This will address the backlog of housing infrastructure and not only keep up with population growth but demonstrate a commitment to a stronger, fairer Victoria for future generations.
The Housing Peaks Alliance is made up of Aboriginal Housing Victoria, Community Housing Industry Association Victoria, Council to Homeless Persons, Domestic Violence Victoria, Justice Connect, Tenants Victoria, the Victorian Public Tenants Association and the Victorian Council of Social Service.
