Make Queensland Fair

As our state gets richer, more and more Queenslanders can’t afford the basics. Right now, 2.6 million Queenslanders are concerned about the cost-of-living. QCOSS and our sector partners are calling for real relief from the cost of living crisis so Queenslanders can be Queenslanders again.

    Advance to Zero

Advance to Zero

Advance to Zero (AtoZ) seeks to demonstrate that ending homelessness is possible in Australia. The campaign is a collaboration between a broad range of communities, organisations and individuals that are committed to ending homelessness. In Queensland, QCOSS are supporters of Brisbane Zero, Gold Coast Zero and Logan Zero.

    Family Matters

Family Matters

Family Matters aims to eliminate the over-representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in out-of-home care by 2040. It is led by SNAICC – National Voice for our Children, and is supported by a Strategic Alliance of over 150 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous organisations, leading academics and prominent educational institutions.

    Everybody's Home - Housing solutions for all Australians

Everybody’s Home

QCOSS is a proud supporter of Everybody’s Home – a national campaign to fix the housing crisis. It was launched in 2018 by a coalition of housing, homelessness and welfare organisations to achieve the change needed so everybody has a safe and decent place to live.

Power Together

QCOSS is part of an alliance of advocacy organisations who want to re-imagine and unlock the powers of renewable energy to reduce cost of living pressures for all Queenslanders, forever.

Raise the Age

Government must work collaboratively with children, families, communities and the community sector to design a framework and service system to raise the minimum age of criminal responsibility.

Make Renting Fair in Queensland

During the last two years, Queensland rents have increased at rates well above inflation. With more than 33 per cent of households in Queensland calling a rental home, we need fair, safe and certain renting laws for all Queenslanders.

    The Town of Nowhere logo

The Town of Nowhere

The Town of Nowhere campaign brings together a coalition of community organisations and everyday Queenslanders dedicated to ending our state’s housing crisis. We’re calling on the government to take action by making a substantial investment in building social homes.

    Raise The Rate For Good logo

Raise the Rate for Good

The continuing COVID-19 health and economic crises have led to more people than ever before struggling to find paid work. We are calling for a permanent and adequate increase to JobSeeker, Youth Allowance and related payments to cover the basics, so everyone can put a roof over their head and food on the table.

Queensland Budget advocacy

Each year, following consultation with QCOSS members, we develop our budget priorities for the community services sector. Our budget priorities are designed to strengthen the community services sector, end the housing crisis, bridge the digital divide, expand low-income households’ access to the renewable energy transformation, and eliminate inequality and the gender pay gap.
