The Council has released their Position Statement for the 2020 Queensland State Election.
The Council recognises that this election presents an ideal opportunity to maintain the focus on homelessness and social housing, and in the midst of a health, economic and housing crisis, the stakes are extremely high for the most vulnerable in our community – those experiencing or at risk of homelessness. CHPQ has continued to advocate for the creation of safe and affordable housing, and a strong mandate on improving the experience of homelessness in Queensland.
Without access to adequate social and affordable housing to meet the current and projected future demand, coupled with a lack of funding investment for the sector, Specialist Homelessness Services in Queensland will struggle to reduce the incidence of homelessness through prevention measures, support those experiencing homelessness and alleviate homelessness.
