The ACTCOSS submission to the ACT Budget 2015-16 includes key asks around affordable housing and homelessness that community sector organisations have come together to promote. We collectively believe on-going investment will underpin and facilitate genuinely better and more sustainable outcomes for disadvantaged Canberrans in the areas Government has identified as priorities for action in its Budget Strategy.
Our members have also identified three areas of urgent need that we advise the Government to invest in as a matter of priority:
- Accessible services and community infrastructure
- Prevention, early intervention and targeted assistance
- Reorienting and prioritising service delivery in the context of whole-of-community roll out of the NDIS.
