Housing

I grew up in public housing. I know what it’s like to do it tough. And I know the security that having a roof over your head can bring. A Labor Government that I lead will invest in social housing. And we want Australians to be able to afford homes, especially people wanting to buy their first home.

Labor's vision:

  1. We’ll build more social housing to fix our housing crisis.
  2. Labor will put tradies to work immediately to repair and maintain existing social housing.
  3. We’re calling for the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme for new builds to be expanded.
  4. Grants to first home buyers who build their first home.

The details:

I was raised by a single mum on a disability pension. Owning her own place was never on the cards. So we lived in council housing in the Sydney suburb of Camperdown. 

Having access to a safe and stable place to grow up meant I could get a good education and eventually own my own place. I want every Australian to have the opportunities I had – no matter what their housing situation. 

Work needs to start now. There are 100,000 social housing dwellings around the country that are in urgent need of repair. 

Australians are living in mouldy homes. It just shouldn’t be happening. We’ll fix this immediate problem. 

This will be a win-win, providing work for local tradies and fixing homes that need to be fixed. 

We need to get tradies back on the tools. One of the best ways to kickstart the economy is to build social housing.

Right now we’ve got a government that doesn’t care about social housing – allocating nothing in the last Budget, leaving states to go it alone. 

Labor will invest in social housing because it means jobs for Australian workers and homes for those who need them most.
