The 10-Year Strategy for Social and Affordable Housing is being developed in close consultation with social housing residents, the housing and homelessness sector, community services, local government, industry and the Victorian community.
In February 2021 we sought input from Victorians on their priorities and recommendations, asking them what is important to them in a 10-Year Strategy for Social and Affordable Housing.
We received more than 290 community surveys and 180 submissions spanning a range of sectors, including:
- community services
- community housing
- advocacy groups
- local government.
To ensure this strategy places people at the centre and improves outcomes for Victorians who need housing support, we undertook targeted engagement with people who live in or need social housing as part of this consultation program.
This feedback has been carefully reviewed and will be incorporated into the 10-Year Strategy for Social and Affordable Housing.
