It’s not acceptable that in a wealthy country like Australia, 1 in 10 households are in housing stress and young families are increasingly staying in rent due to difficulty affording a home.
In this election year, let your elected representatives know that you expect action to address the housing crisis.
Housing affordability affects renters, home owners, parents, the whole community and future generations.
We need your help.
The closer the election draws near, the more attention members of Parliament and hopeful candidates will pay to their own community, and to voters in their own electorate. We’ve identified a number of MPs who we think we need to pay more attention to the housing crisis.
We’re asking you to write a letter-to-the-editor of your local paper. If you are in one of our target electorates, you can send this letter direct from our website.
If you live outside these target areas, you can still use this website to write to a major metropolitan newspaper in your State.
To get action on affordable housing, we need people like you to add their voices to the public discussion. Your support can make a huge difference to the success of this campaign.
