Submission to the Yoorrook Justice Commission Inquiry into Housing and Homelessness


The Yoorrook Justice Commission is the first formal truth-telling process into injustices experienced by First Peoples in Victoria. It is currently investigating systemic injustice experienced by First Peoples in relation to housing and homelessness.

CHP has long acknowledged that the significant over-representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the numbers of people without a home is a direct and enduring consequence of colonisation. We want to see the Mana-na woorn-tyeen maar-takoort Every Aboriginal Person has a home be adopted, funded and implemented in full. Greater funding and support to empower ACCOs to deliver homelessness services will not only result in more homelessness support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Victorians, but also better outcomes.
