QCOSS welcomes the Senate Select Committee on Cost of Living Inquiry and the Committee’s exploration of the cost-of-living crisis. The scale and severity of the crisis demands an ambitious whole-of-government response. Opportunities for the federal government to work in partnership with state and territory governments must underpin a comprehensive and strategic plan to pave a sustainable way forward.

Our submission is informed by engagement with QCOSS members across Queensland, along with our ongoing research on living affordability. Through comprehensive and co-ordinated government investment and policy, including increasing income support to above the poverty line, meaningful change can be achieved to help those most in need.
