Queensland is in a housing crisis.
The Town of Nowhere campaign brings together a coalition of community organisations and everyday Queenslanders dedicated to ending our state’s housing crisis.
Currently tens of thousands of Queenslanders are on the state’s social housing register. Vacancy rates across the state are at historic lows and low-income households are spending more than 50% of their income on housing costs.
Everyone should have a safe place to call home, but our current reality means entire families are living out of tents, in their cars, couch surfing, or sleeping rough.
QCOSS and our campaign partners are asking State Government to step up and create actual change – change that can turn struggle into stability, tents into tenancies, and hopes into home. Everyone should have access to the most basic right: a safe and secure place to live.
