Human Rights Act

Human Rights Act Australia

QCOSS supports the Human Rights Law Centre’s campaign for a national Human Rights Act. It’s time to build a fairer Australia where our fundamental human rights are fully protected, and an Australian Human Rights Act will ensure that values we all share – like fairness, respect, dignity and compassion – are always at the heart of all government decisions, laws and policies. Including health, housing, education and caring for the elderly.

Home Time

Home Time is a national campaign to improve Australia’s housing system for almost 40,000 children and young people who have nowhere to live. The campaign was initiated by a group of peak bodies in Victoria who commissioned research to provide analysis of housing policies and funding arrangements that impacted the ability of 15-24-year-olds without parental or carer support to escape homelessness and access safe housing and the support they need.

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 (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.
