Our Priorities sets out whole of government targets to deliver better outcomes for all Western Australians. Having a safe, secure and affordable home is fundamental to the delivery of all the priorities of government. A home enables people to take up education and training opportunities and to fully participate in community life. Housing is a social determinant of health. Good quality housing and services are a powerful way to improve people’s health and wellbeing. Investing in more diverse social and affordable housing and services will build great communities and create employment and economic growth. The current housing system is broken. It doesn’t meet the needs or aspirations of all Western Australians.
Investment in housing is good for the economy, and great for people.
