Message from QCOSS CEO Aimee McVeigh
Key political milestones saw 2021-22 finish strongly for QCOSS and our members, with the federal election in May 2022 and Queensland Budget in June 2022 driving extensive advocacy for more social housing investment, increases to income support payments and cost of living relief.
These advocacy moments came after 12 months of deep engagement and consultation with our members and the wider sector, as we confirmed policy priorities for government. QCOSS welcomed the election of a new federal government and Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, drawing attention to the potential for him to use his experience growing up in public housing as a motivation for ensuring all children have a roof over their head.
The next 12 months will see more opportunities to raise our voices together as we seek to achieve equality, opportunity and wellbeing for all people, in all communities. Cost of living pressures, in the context of the ongoing housing crisis, will challenge Queenslanders’ resilience. We need more services across Queensland, especially to support young people.
