10 days after the Ministerial Announcement, we had a follow-up meeting with Minister for Communities and Housing, Leeanne Enoch
Members of the Housing Older Women Movement, Innovation House, and Co-Creating Community met to workshop what would be required to initiate stages in developing collaborative housing initiatives. Participants came from Tin Can Bay, Sunshine Coast, Ipswich as well as greater Brisbane.
HOW Movement Core Group members and staff and members of the Housing for the Aged Action Group met with the Productivity Commissioners, Malcolm Roberts and Romlie Mokak, and their team to discuss the review of the National Housing and Homelessness Agreement.
Both groups followed up with a formal submission to the Review. You can read ours here.

We were delighted by Minister Leeanne Enoch’s announcement of five key initiatives to begin to meet the needs of our cohort. The announcement was a direct result of our advocacy and the initiatives are an integral part of the Queensland Housing and Homelessness Action Plan 2021-2025.
