ACTCOSS has identified six policy priorities that will give a fair go to people on low incomes and those disadvantaged by current systems: income support; housing security; quality community services; fair, fast, and inclusive climate action; self-determination for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples; and revenue.
ACTCOSS surveyed candidates in the 2022 federal election about these policy priorities. We received responses from Greens candidates and independent candidates Kim Rubenstein, David Pocock and Jamie Christie. Labor candidates also sent a separate co-sponsored letter advising stances on select policy issues. ACTCOSS did not receive any response to survey communications from Liberal, UAP or other candidates.
