Come along to our February Town Hall in Belconnen to hear about progress on key priorities and talk to me about the issues that are important to you.
The town hall meetings are part of my commitment to doing politics differently and remaining open, accountable and accessible to our community.
With access to affordable housing still one of the biggest challenges faced by our community, and legislation to establish the $10bn Housing Australia Future Fund and the new National Housing Supply and Affordability Council coming before the parliament, our guest speaker for the evening will be YWCA Canberra CEO Frances Crimmins.
Frances is passionate about supporting people experiencing homelessness, with a particular interest in addressing the needs of older women and women with children at risk of homelessness. In her time as CEO of YWCA Canberra, Frances has led the continued growth of the organisation’s housing portfolio, growing both supply of housing and support services. She is also an advocate for policy measures that address the root causes of homelessness for women, including gender inequality and gender-based violence.
Frances will speak on housing in the ACT before handing over to me for a brief update on what I've been up to recently and what's on the agenda in the coming weeks. We will then move onto Q&A. You are invited to submit your questions online via Slido as well as from the floor on the day. Please submit them here (enter the code Pocock23 if prompted).
Look forward to seeing you there.
