Our advocacy aims to influence policy, legislative, funding and service delivery decisions within political, economic, and social systems and institutions. Advocacy includes media campaigns, public speaking, commissioning and publishing research to promote public debate and awareness.

Advocacy in all its forms seeks to ensure that people, particularly those who citizens who are in need and are most vulnerable in society, are able to:

  • Have their needs included in decisions that affect them
  • Defend and safeguard their rights
  • Have their voices genuinely considered when decisions are being made about them

Policies are used to determine eligibility for services, provision of resources, and determining courses of action.

Yesterday I attended the Womens Wave event to pay tribute to the 69 women killed in violent circumstances in Australia in 2018. It was an incredibly moving event. Violence against women is not acceptable and must be eliminated.

A Code Red Activation has been initiated for the regional centres of the Riverland and Port Augusta from today 21 January to Friday 25 January 2019. The Homelessness Gateway Service will continue to operate 24/7 to assist with emergency accommodation - call 1800 003 308.

The provision of housing is a basic human need and one that remains unmet for many Territorians. Mindful of the NT's fiscal challenges but unapologetic of the need for better housing outcomes, our 2019-20 pre-budget submission to the NTG is here: https://t.co/gkQpFPh4u5 #NTpol

A timely & considered piece by @RebeccaVassarot on recent data published on @Domaincomau indicating #CBR now commands the highest median weekly asking rents for detached houses https://t.co/QpS1qWk6hq … #Rent #GenerationRent #EverybodysHome #RentalAffordability @_EverybodysHome

A poor show by security at Aged Care Royal Commission on what otherwise was a significant watershed moment in aged care in this country. And to think not one of those suited lawyers at the head of the conga line even cared to offer their place up for victims.Apology warranted. https://t.co/WPRewtd0pb
