As the federal election day draws closer, we believe urgent action is needed to ensure all Australians are supported and empowered to live a fulfilling life. That is why we have selected four priorities that we are bringing to the attention of candidates in these elections.

The four priorities are:

  1. Addressing gender inequality and its effects on our community, including family violence
  2. Improving quality of life for people experiencing mental health issues
  3. Meeting housing needs so everyone can participate in society
  4. Allowing people with disability to be independent and meet their own goals

We’ve prepared a list of specific actions we are asking from our next government, which you can download here

We are also working with other organisations to highlight the importance of housing, fair treatment for refugees and asylum seekers and gun safety.
