Better Together: A Framework for Addressing Housing Need and Homelessness in Queensland (2024-2025)
Q Shelter is Queensland’s peak organisation working to ensure every Queenslander has a home. Q Shelter delivers projects, activities, and services across two externally focused outcomes:
- Influencing solutions to housing needs and homelessness
- Building capacity and capability.
Each year, Q Shelter presents a policy and investment framework on how to positively address housing need and homelessness in Queensland.
This year, Q Shelter’s submission deliberately proposes an underpinning framework to locate housing and homelessness responses within a poverty-reduction framework for Queensland. Q Shelter also builds on previous submissions to focus on upstream ‘prevention’ in favour of downstream crisis responses.
Q Shelter’s historical policy positions are available below, and you’ll also find our submissions and related material on our website. To participate in any of our online learning exchanges, register through the events section of our website.
