  • A sustainable recovery from the social, health and economic shock of COVID-19. 
  • Adequate funding for community sector organisations.  
  • Addressing the ACT’s ongoing housing crisis. 
  • Reducing inequality and supporting increased numbers of Canberrans receiving income support. 
  • Improving outcomes for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples.
