MHCA submission to the Senate Standing Committee on Economics Inquiry into Affordable Housing 2014

The MHCA provided a submission to the Senate Inquiry into Affordable Housing. In our submission we:

  • recommended that people with lived experience of mental illness be recognised as a priority group in future housing and homelessness agreements
  • recommended that the National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness be re-funded for a further five years and
  • endorsed the continuation of current strategies aimed at growing the community housing sector to ensure that there are increased housing options available for people with lived experience of mental illness.
